Men with arm tattoos should always have them hidden under a nice shirt.
Women with neck tattoos should always wear there hair down to hide them.
Piercings are the most physical attribute that can lead to an individual not being hired, or an employee being fired.
Ear rings are acceptable, as long as they’re not too big and flashy
Nose rings, tongue rings, and snake bites are ABSOLUTELY unacceptable!
Necklaces and bracelets are nice to look at, but should not be worn in a business setting.
Both tend to take the focus off of the person wearing them due to flashiness.
A nice watch is acceptable. Compliments a man or woman’s nice suit.
Men should always have neatly, trimmed hair that’s combed or brushed.
Women should always have a nice hairdo that’s well-maintained.
Employees should always be well-bathed.
Fresh breath and cleanly, trimmed fingernails are also required.
Dressing professionally goes beyond your clothes.
Remember you are representing yourself and your company.
