Dress code

Does power dressing pay off?

Can our choice of clothing impact the way we work and how we are treated at work?
For many of us, deciding what to wear to work is a daily chore. But is there more to our sartorial choices than meets the eye? Can they impact the way we work and how we are treated at work?

Leaders of certain companies argue that formal dressing has a positive impact on employee performance. Others believe this is nothing but a source of additional pressure for employees.

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we talk about workplace culture and what makes for a good office dress code. We ask whether power dressing is important, and how it differs between men and women.

We also hear from leaders of two companies with very different dress code policies, and an entrepreneur who launched her own workwear brand for women.
