How far Dress Code adds in Productivity

Dress at workplace has always been a contentious issue, where organizations find it an important factor to form repute but employees are find it yet another rule imposed to be followed under pressure. In fact, corporate dressing plays an important role in setting status and also maintains a right kind of attitude and energy level amongst employees. External communication is an indispensable part of working of every organization, hence the importance of dressing or appropriate dressing can’t be ignored at all. Today characterization of Formal dressing is under phase of broad transformation.

What has influenced me to take this Issue to discuss on this platform? There are many answers to this question. First and foremost is to scrutinize the changes that are really occurring in corporate dressing. Organizations intensely dealing in domains like media, advertising, public relations etc., have been shored up the flexible culture of dressing, but scenario is changing now. They are realizing of value of entertaining clients in formal dresses so the round neck T shirts, Jeans with patches, Capris etc., are no more liked to be worn by sensible employees. Yet few of the organization haven’t been extrovert on this issue yet they desire to see their workforce in formals. Although, these organizations have not fixed rules for dressing but in meetings they are trying to edify their employees about desired dressing sense. The statements may not be straight, they might come as a tip-off, but its time for us to understand the implicit message. 

Have you started imagining yourself in dull color full sleeves shirts with tie or a fitted three piece suit, relax, it is not that. Today definition of formal dressing has also been changed. All the dresses that look sensible and present you as professional (don’t divert your client’s attention from presentation/discussion) can be still placed in your office wears.

Comfort is incredibly important factor to be considered while selecting pieces for office wears yet that has to be considered as a whole not for self only. Connote is to mull over others’ point of view as well. Just ensuring that your selection will not distract others’ attention.

Coming to the core of the discussion, women may pick right from sarees, suits, trousers to business suits. Sad, that man have a smaller range yet they can select all decent color shirts, Collar T Shirts, Trousers etc. 

I think that dressing well is an imperative tool to impress clients and show your sensibility to your boss.

Impact of recession on the Indian job market

As the cliché goes when the US sneezes, the world catches cold. Somewhat of the same had been experienced not just by India but also by all the economies across the globe with the unprecedented bankruptcy of the world’s largest financial bank, Lehman Brothers. Not only the job sector was affected but major sectors like housing, financing, tourism etc. also saw a major decline because the spending parity of the people were limited. Recession is a word that has been overused for a long time and many a times people do not succeed in understanding the correct meaning. Recession can be defined as a decline in a country’s gross domestic product in two or more consecutive quarters.

The impact of recession had less negative impact on the Indian economy as the relatively slow economic development had always been a point of criticism. However, the flow of foreign investments into the Indian business sectors had also been controlled variably. Nevertheless, foreign investments may furthermore slow down India’s growth rate but we can keep ourselves impervious from the current ongoing crisis. Since Indian economy is facing a slowdown and not recession expectations of people are soaring high so that they can prove it that they are worth every penny that a company is going to invest upon them. The growth rate of 7% in the last fiscal year ended March 31st testifies to it that India is gradually releasing itself from economic slowdown as well.

The government has planned to introduce stricter norms and regulations so that India does not face such a situation as earlier it was faced by some ASEAN countries in the year 1997-1998 and the recession of 2008.
