Our team headed out to beautiful Steveston in Richmond, BC for our Spring/Summer Photo Shoot.  Being February, we were dealing with record low minus ten degree temperatures!  Despite the extreme weather, we were able to work together and get some amazing photographs.  Here is a little behind the scenes look at our shoot...

Casual Friday has become Stupid!

Follow

Plum passed a preview of our survey results to some friends. Apparently, the results struck a nerve... we've decided to post Fash' email, with permission, of course. The comments by Fash Trash are her own and not representative of No Guru or Plum.

Casual Friday has become Stupid!

This survey proves it to me!  We have lost our way with Casual Friday.  It used to be fun when everyone had to dress up for work then on Friday you could show a little personality with your outfits.  But now that anything goes in the workplace Casual Friday has become stupid.

I bank at a credit union and hate going in on Fridays.  I think, “I am giving this woman my money? She looks more like I should be giving her spare change!”

But the thing that I cannot understand is how employers don’t care how their employees look!  Plum’s survey says that less than 8% even cared enough to have a clear dress code for Casual Friday!  This is unreal to me.  How can anyone take a business seriously if they don’t care enough to look like they mean business?

In my office the man or woman who dresses too casually is not taken seriously and not because of “what” they wear but because they don’t look like they have their sh_t together.  When they don’t care enough to put themselves together it looks like they would rather be home on the couch than doing their job … so why would anyone take them seriously much less give them a job with more responsibility? At another job I had, if we wanted take-out pizza on the Friday it was that person that was sent out for it.

It just seems like it takes so little effort to put a look together and to show that you appreciate your job … not to mention your customers.

Editor's note: We edited Fash's original email a little bit, and we're adding this comic relief - Curb Your Enthusiasm on Casual Friday.
