Clipping Your Toenails and Wearing Colored Underwear?

Filed under: General HR Buzz6:00 am

Banking giant UBS has had to backtrack on its recently released 44 page dress code policies for its Swiss employees.  The highly detailed dress and eating code had required employees to wear flesh colored underwear and avoid eating onions and garlic.  It instructed its female employees on how to apply makeup, and  what kind of perfume  and stocking to wear.    They were also told that “ you could extend the life of your knee socks and stockings by keeping your toenails trimmed and filed,”  Additionally, they should  “always have a spare pair: stockings can be provisionally repaired with transparent nail polish and a bit of luck.”  Men were instructed on knotting their ties, to get haircuts monthly and avoid untidy beards and earrings.

Further, “glasses should always be kept clean. On the one hand this gives you optimal vision, and on the other hand dirty glasses create an appearance of negligence.”   Employees should also wear wristwatches to convey “trustworthiness and a serious concern for punctuality.”   The code is being revised to provide only general guidelines.
