A key performer (male) complains to HR that he cannot concentrate on his work ,because of the dress code of the female employees in the office...what should be the step taken by the HR person; under circumstances that he cannot be sent to another branch or department...nor can the dress code be changed :?: :?:
Hi Nitha, What kind of business your organization is into - is it showbiz, fashion or an ad agency? Please clarify. Regards, PRADEEP
Really silly.....Person... For one man....u r goin to change the whole of organization??? Not worth it. Vinod Vijapur
An Individual sessions should be conducted with both and also if the dress code of the female is affecting others she must be told about that coz' a work place has its own ethics which must be maintained.
Dear Madam,
Try and speak to the employee regarding this... what's his background.... understand why he feels insecure working in such an environment.... u need to have a counseling section with this individual.... try to undestand his values, beliefs etc....

I think the person needs behaviourial training. In a work place u r suppose to concentrate on work not on individuals.....It doest matter what a person wears cuz people can distract others emotionally, psychology (bad professional tricks) etc...
I don't think there is a need to change in dress code. You can ask that person whether he concentrate on his work or he looks to other people what they are doing or wearning. However, if that lady is wearning which is not acceptable in the organisation then you should talk to that lady too as we need to maintain some standard in dress also.

Hi, Mention the standard dress code for all employees ( male & female ). This will definitely resolve the problem. Regards, Anay

Interestingly there are two ways to look at it.

One the employee is trying to find an escape route to procrastinate his work/assignments for which he is accountable. Since he knows that the organisation may take sum time to resolve this issue, he has that much time at his disposal to get back and concentrate on his work.

Hence he should at the first place be told that an employee who comes to the office to work, who has his priorities set, knows what he has to more concentrate on- the dress or his work. If he knows what interests him more, no menka can divert him.

Secondly, the lady who is now so much brought to the notice of th mangement(you), should be observed for a day or two to see how much truth lies in what this employee has to say. Then, very slyly but firmly she shud be informed that she shud try to avoid wearing such provoking dresses. No female would continue wearing such outfits once made her realise. Every employee is important- be the male or that female employee. The respect of both employees should be maintained but still made them realise where the yare wrong.

There could always be a possibiity that the male employee has a silent rivalry with the lady and is trying to bring her to notice and pull her down.

hence watecver the case be, action shud be immediately taken and not given too much of significance. Or else the employees would come back cribbinbg abolut similar cases. Also, if nothing is done soon, organisation may be termed as helpless to deal with such small issues.

Wishya all the best.
