In the 21st century, the importance of the individual and freedom of expression has been drummed into our heads from a very young age. Our differences are something to be celebrated, not hidden nor denied. To that end, a uniform may appear to be, on the surface, the very antithesis of individuality.
A company seeking to ensure employee satisfaction, while upholding a certain brand look and identity, can embrace an employee’s freedom of expression by implementing a flexible uniform policy. Offering options to the employee can go a long way in terms of creating a work environment that embraces the uniform and has the ability to still incorporate choice in that framework.
