For many professionals, the days of wearing uniforms may have ended with high school – but for an increasing percentage of the Australian workforce, their outfit is the same every single day.

    I was in a discussion where we were asked to throw around ideas which we thought were good, but taboo. One was uniforms for employees. The reasoning was as follows: " Clothes make an impression, which can lead to an unconsious bias. A number of studies have highlighted how 'power dressing' anc help you career, but if you are not a stylish dresser, you might be left behind for no fault of yours. Uniforms enable the managers/ customers and other stake holder to go beyond the clothes you are wearing and encourage evaluation based on your contributions and ideas."

    I found this rather interesting. Glad to hear your views.
