Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (Baker Tilly) announced on Wednesday the introduction of an internal “Dress for Your Day” pilot program, intended to give team members a choice in what they wear to work based on where and with whom they'll be working with.
“This policy is fairly unique to our industry,” said Baker Tilly chief human resources officer Karleen Mussman, in a statement. “Our employees have asked for greater flexibility with respect to workplace policies and we were very happy to respond. Baker Tilly prides itself on having the highest level of professionalism and we believe in our people, respect their choices and wish to support their need for flexibility."
The Dress for Your Day pilot is effective immediately in all of Baker Tilly’s offices, and will be evaluated at a later date to see if it will be worth continuing.
“This policy is part of our effort to continue to build our exceptional workplace," Mussman added. "As the nature of work evolves, we want to provide our employees with policies that evolve as well. Our goal is to ensure they feel welcome, respected and that they have tools to successfully manage their professional and personal lives. We believe our national and local best workplace awards reflect our commitment to our clients and acknowledge our efforts to create an exceptional culture for our team members."
