Published: Friday, 29 February 2008   Category: Graduate Job sector Reports

New research has found that many workers feel that dressing smartly will be beneficial to their job.

The study was conducted by Reed Employment and found that around 51 per cent of respondents believe that smart attire will advance their career.

Some 37 per cent feel that work clothes separate their home and work lives, while another 37 per cent said that they are proud to wear clothes that representeded their company's brand.

Lewis Woodward, head of network marketing at Reed, said: "The old adage 'dress for success' clearly rings true, with the majority of office workers happily embracing their company's dress code and feeling proud to represent their brand."

However, he added that it was "surprising" to find that such a high proportion of respondents feel that smart clothing was still linked to career advancement in today's business climate.

Additionally, the survey found that jeans and 'comedy' ties are banned at most offices.
