When reading this article, I was shocked to learn that Virgin Atlantic only amended their uniform policy last year to allow cabin crew to wear trousers and choose whether or not to wear makeup!   This should have happened years ago!   Is this case with all airlines I wonder?

So we all recognise now that having a business casual dress code can boost productivity and engagement ; not all industries can offer this however - our emergency services for example.  

But in SME's, it is far more common for a relaxed dress code.    Within Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment, we are less worried about our appearance; we prefer to concentrate our energy on achieving great results and taking our performance to the next level.  When required, we ensure that we tailor our dress code to that of a client or candidate meeting or a corporate event.  But otherwise, we can wear whatever we feel comfortable in!
