In many organizations, the uniform is a part of compulsory dress code whereas in some organizations it is not compulsory. In this paragraph, we are going to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of wearing a uniform at workplace.
There are many advantages of wearing uniform at workplace. Firstly, uniform represents equality and wearing same uniform represents that every employee is equal in the eyes of company. For instance, in amazon warehouses, there is a uniform for every worker and it leads to more satisfaction among them. Secondly, in some cases uniform acts as a part of safety gear for employees. For example, Firefighters need to wear a particular safety gear including jackets and shoes which provides safety to them. In addition to that, there is a need of uniform in case of promotion of the company or its products like in case of salesman or saleswomen wearing the dress with the company name on it.
Like advantages it has many disadvantages also. Primarily, sometimes uniform leads to the low esteem among the employees. For instance, when employees from top to middle level of management wears the same uniform, so it leads to the low esteem or dissatisfaction among the top level management employees. Secondly, from company’s point of view uniform increases the operational cost of the company. Sometimes uniform also hurts the religious sentiments of the people and then it creates a bad reputation of the company in the market.
In the end, I want to conclude that uniforms should not be compulsory at workplace cause sometimes it leads to create many issues and then it leads to dissatisfaction among employees. Employees should have the right to wear whatever they want in a prescribed dress code.
