QuestionsGeneral-MiscAm I forced to wear formal outfit in jobs like Programmer/IT related?
Hoaxify asked 9 months ago

I feel quite uneasy in formal attire and, considering I will only interact with my team and concentrate on my tasks without engaging with clients, I believe my abilities and qualifications should be the deciding factors, rather than the need to adhere to formal dress codes.

Each company has their own dress code. Some may impose formal outfits while some may opt for smart casual.

You have to abide as per what the Company Employment Handbook dictates.

Yes if it’s mentioned in the company policy or your contract.
It’s not just about the qualifications or skills, it’s the fact that you respect your coworkers enough to at least put some effort in what you’re wearing to the office. That said, formal wear is a drag, and I haven’t seen many people in IT wearing suits. Our IT guy comes in everyday with a hoodie so 🤷🏽‍♀️

I think its more of a mauritian policy than company based..
I work in a global company, so policies depend on the office based location than the company policy.

My managers/tech leads/colleagues in EU can wear shorts when they go to office..But may not be the same if they visit/come to the MRU office..

Depends where you are. I’m allowed to wear t-shirts and jeans/shorts in office. The t-shirt should not contain any indecent characters or pictures. Only time you need to be formal is during on site client presentation

I haven’t worn formal clothes ever since i left Accenture back in 2020. Not even for formal occasions like marriages etc… hate them. i am always wearing casual smart.

I worked at EY and Accenture… At EY, there were a lot people in formal outfits but casual existed too and no one said a thinh. Whereas at acn, rarely you would see someone full formal maybe when there are client visit etc but mostly casual..
