Taxation Office too sexy?

By 5 May 2014 10

When I think of the Taxation Office, there are many things that may come to mind. Tax, accounting, long discussions over assets and liabilities. Not once has the Taxation Office brought to mind anything sexy, which would perhaps be misguided of me.

According to an article in the Canberra Times, public servants at the Tax Office have been told to tone down their sexy attire (for the ladies anyway, apparently some of the fella’s have been reminded that board shorts and thongs are not necessarily appropriate).

So, scantily clad ladies and too casual men. Whatever gets you through a day working in Tax I guess…

Maybe they could make a six part series about it similar to ‘Janet King’ that just ran on the ABC. Tight clothing and pouty lips seems to be all the rage there with no one being sent home to change.

Can we also stop the people who think super baggy tshirts, leggings and sneakers are work clothes.

I’m in favour of casual.sexy clothes in the office, but am not getting a job at tax regardless of how much they bring the sexy back.

Hate to spoil the implication that Canberra might have some sexy, but the workers referred to in the article are from the Sydney office.

That and we’ve just started 5 months of winter ..

Colleague of mine fell off her 7 inch stiletto heels staggering down the steps after a networking event at work, broke her ankle, and got compo … really, the rules shouldn’t be so concerned about “sexy” and concentrate on “safety”.

Ugly and embarrassing sight watching a woman making a fool of themselves trying to walk in high heels on anything but the flattest surface. Reading about the 7 inch stilettos, I was thinking we had safety rules at work regarding footwear, but perhaps as long as they were ‘filled’ in shoes, there might have been no rules regarding heel height. Perhaps there should be, but then heel height was a good way to judge seniority at work. The higher the heel, generally the more junior was the wearer.

Taking off my cardigan is as sexy as I get in the office.

It’s not just ‘sexy’ – it’s downright rubbish attire. I just saw a worker exit the ATO building – long denim shorts and a hawaiian shirt (is it hawaiian shirt day?) – and wearing her ATO Building Pass. She didn’t scream professionalism to me. I think they have their work cut out for them…
