Friday undoubtedly is the coolest day of the week. That day of the week when workplace stress is at its lowest and employees already start slipping into the weekend mood. Even though it does not seem like it, but making Fridays Casual is a subtle way to boost workplace morale whilst keeping up the excitement levels of employees.
You might argue that your company does have a flexible dress code, but is it actually flexible?
Many companies unfortunately shun the idea of motivating their employees to wear shorts and sleeveless even though they promote casual Fridays. We need to understand that employees are mature and conscious about how they look.
There’s no need for the company to monitor them closely on their attire.
Casual Fridays add a fun element and creates a stress-free environment for the employees.
It gives employees a medium to relax and let out. Eureka! Workplace nirvana, anyone?
More than anything, it speaks about how tolerant the management is.
Since employees spend better part of their day and lives in offices, this will help them connect better and feel a part of family.
Casual work attire is viewed as a perk by many employees that helps them stay motivated.
