Suits you – or does it? Goodman Masson brings in relaxed dress code

Goodman Masson’s new dress code reflects the nature of the changing workplace, according to the financial recruiter’s CEO Guy Hayward.

Hayward told Recruiter the firm’s new dress code, launched a fortnight ago, is in line with other changes the recruiter has brought in to benefit its staff, such as changed working hours from 8.30am to 6.30pm to 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 3.30pm on Fridays.

For male members of staff this means a suit and tie are no longer required attire, replaced with a smart business casual dress code requiring collared shirts, trousers and polished or suede shoes.

For female members of staff, “smart, slick, presentable” attire is required that would enable staff to have a conversation with a client should they call up and request a face-to-face meeting.
