  • Why do some organisations have a so-called ‘dress down Friday’?  Are the activities they perform on a Friday any Untitled-361different to the rest of the working days? Why do we really need to ‘dress-up’ on the other days?
  • Would not a more relaxed (and smart) outfit promote better work productivity and less ‘energy’ on dressing-up and ‘warming up’ the office AC?
  • With the exception of certain external-interfacing (which may require ‘dressing up’?). Why do we need to wear long-sleeved shirts and ties, especially in a tropical country? This should equally apply to ladies, although I have not endeavoured to suggest what the relaxed outfit should be!
