Your Dilemma Answers: Too much casual, too little business

Posted on August 7, 2010 in What's Your Advice - Answers

I spend a lot of time on the road at trade shows, and in the trade show world, proper attire is part of the brand experience. So, I was shocked at the less than casual attire in my office this summer. If some of our customers stopped by our headquarters, what would they think to see my coworkers wearing flip-flops, tank tops and shorts? Should I take my concerns to upper management or HR, or just keep my big mouth shut?
