As reported in todays CT.
The reason that they are bring in a dress code is nothing to do with a staff survey that did not have a question about attire. The reason is that the new honchos mostly come from Centrelink where they have had a dress code since 1999. They are cloning themselves. There was a perception that people wearing jeans were not projecting themselves as professionals.
Anyway the dress code is not a draft: It is due to be launched with great fanfare on 1st of June.
What is stupid, is that men cannot wear polo shirts, you know with a collar. Try getting through you day installing IT equipment wearing (optional -yeah right) a tie. Come to think of it, I plan to wear my classic 1960s rocket engineer attire of short sleeved white shirt, black tie, pocket protector and horn rimmed galsses. Oh I also plan to wear my ugg boots.
