Want to Be More Creative? Lose the Tie
This article on workplace experience really resonated with us here at RDT, as the dress code at RDT’s office is ‘casual’. Many of the RDT family have previously worked for large insurance companies in London, where the dress code is ‘business suits’, so many are really surprised by RDT’s stance on what is acceptable to wear in the workplace.
It can take a while to get used to the dress code at RDT, but any new member of staff will soon come to realise that it does make a positive impact when they are able to dress in clothes they feel comfortable in.
It removes barriers when the receptionist is frequently more smartly dressed than the CEO, and the directors and the developers are all in jeans. And, as Sir Richard suggested, it increases the creativity of our staff – it’s certainly a factor in making this a lovely place to work.
RDT’s dress code is just one way the company demonstrates how much it values its staff and how focused it is on innovation and creativity.
