When it comes to your business, first impressions are crucial, especially the appearance of your business and employees. For this reason, your company's uniform policy should make appearance a top priority. The way customers and clients interact with employees is determined by how the employees look. If you're in a setting where more formal attire is usually expected, then the dress code should emphasize that. If it is a retail setting, the attire can usually be much more laid back.
Businesses can customize employee uniforms however they choose. However, there are some pitfalls you should avoid when you're developing your dress code in order to avoid potential discrimination. It is important to understand that a business cannot keep someone from wearing religious accessories unless they pose a significant threat to personnel safety. No matter how comprehensive your dress code is, there will still be employees who choose not to follow it for one reason or another. You should also state noncompliance consequences clearly in your policy.
