Printing press like other formal business enterprises, are meant to have a decent dress code for her staff members. This not only help for identification, but better position the firm in tune with its establishing goals and objectives. More also is the fact that good dress sense help printers project good professional image of the industry itself both to the immediate client and the global community.
The industry itself and as it is today, requires the appearance of trusted business professionals. The need for this desire is not far-fetched. It can be recalled that printers in some quarters of our business environment, are treated below per because of their haggard outlook, with some persons making ‘awkward’ descriptions of the them. The industry itself has again, suffered all forms of battered necessitated by misinformation or outright informal operation of stakeholders in the sector.
Now we need the good dress sense to talk or walk. We need the good dress code. We need the formal outlook the position us as responsible businessmen and women who are well informed on the use of ink and paper – whether through direct imaging or offset printing – to make money. A more formal dress code is necessary for our print professionals. You must project the image of a trustworthy, knowledgeable business professional for the clients who seek our guidance, input, and professional services. And one of the ways to project all the qualities starts with dressing in the right business attire.
Clothing that reveals too much cleavage, your back, your chest, your feet, your stomach or your underwear is not appropriate for a place of business. In our work environment, clothing should be pressed and never wrinkled. Torn, dirty, or frayed clothing should be unacceptable. All seams must be finished. Any clothing that has words, terms, or pictures that may be offensive to other employees is unacceptable.
Business attire includes suits, pants, jackets, shirts, skirts and dresses that, while not formal, are appropriate for a business environment. Examples of appropriate business attire include a polo shirt with pressed khaki pants, a sweater and shirt with corduroy pants, and a jacket, sweater, and skirt. Jeans, t-shirts, shirts without collars, and footwear such as flip flops, sneakers, and sandals are not appropriate for business attire.
Wearing clothes with profane language, statements or clothing that promotes causes that include but are not limited to politics, religion, sexuality, race, age, gender, and ethnicity, can make co-workers uncomfortable and can even end up offending some other co-workers.
