Owning a small business brings different challenges as well as triumphs. One of the possible trials you may encounter as a business owner is how to bring about the use of a dress code for your employees. Sometimes this becomes a challenge because some workers just don’t want to abide.
This guide hopes to help you introduce working clothes in your small business:
– Identify your business. It’s not just about knowing your target market but also understanding what type of company you’re running. By doing so, you’ll have a deeper awareness of what image you want to convey to your clients. Do this prior to demanding your workers to go by the image.
– Set the rule for everyone. Low- and high-ranking workers should all adhere to the new dress code otherwise it will seem unreasonable. Make it applicable to everyone, even yourself.
– Listen to feedback. Hear your employees’ opinions on the new rule. As a small business manager, you need to be tight but not overbearing. Give time to listen to their woes and compromise need be.
