Sumary of BearingPoint Study: Office Attire – Why Dress Code Will Divide Offices:
- BearingPoint GmbH The home office obligation has expired, many employees are returning to their workplaces in the office – and in numerous companies and authorities, the study Office clothing of the future by the management and technology consultancy BearingPoint has investigated the question of how the relationship between office workers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland has changed their workwear over the past two years.
- Why the closet of their employees will soon occupy many executives – and what study director Alexander Schmid, Executive Advisor at BearingPoint, recommends.
- One thing is certain: the closet of their employees will soon become a topic for many managers.
- Anyone hoping that going back to the office will automatically mean a return to the old dress codes is likely to be disappointed.
- Many office workers have established fact over the past two years.
- The results seem clear: 62 percent of the more than 1,000 office workers surveyed intend to continue wearing T-shirts and sweaters at work after returning to the office.
- The office dress code must then somehow bring together what is basically incompatible with the post-pandemic understanding of clothing and work.
