Tattoos in the Workplace
Transcript of Tattoos in the Workplace
Do college students feel that tattoos will have an effect on their future careers?
• Tattoos are a growing trend within the Millennial generation.
• 14% of people have at least one tattoo
• We are interested in learning whether or not Millenials between the ages 18-30 feel that havig a visible tattoo will have an effect on their future careers.
• Does this effect the tattoo placement?
• As time progresses tattoos are beginning to become more common and accepted in the workplace.
• Employees are feeling less obligated to cover their tattoos up but still feel pressured to during interviews for a prospect job.
• Employers are increasingly forced to choose between rejecting inked employees or having a severely limited job candidate pool.
• Dress codes and appearance policies are enforced but employers are becoming more lenient
• Acceptance rates depend on the industry that you are working in.
• Companies becoming more focused on providing work for employees of different cultural backgrounds.
