Office Space: The Rules?
Each and every office space, both here in the UK or worldwide, has rules. Sometimes these rules can be written down in a formal way, sometimes these rules can be unwritten and indeed unspoken ΓÇô but all of these rules are aimed at allowing an individual office space to function / present itself in a way that the company has deemed desirable.
Common rules in offices around the world include subjects such as dress code, with some businesses wanting employees to be ΓÇ£suited ΓÇÿnΓÇÖ bootedΓÇ¥, while others encourage a more casual approach ΓÇô but both of these approaches, whether you like them or not, are designed to underpin the natural culture of the business.
We all understand that simple ΓÇ£office spaceΓÇ¥ rules can help make an office space more harmonious and are a very sensible way of letting people know what is expected of them. Of course we all have rules in our office space which we may not like ΓÇô but it could always be worse ΓÇô as these ΓÇ£alternativeΓÇ¥ suggestions posted on www.naute.com show:
It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary, if we see you wearing $350 Prada sneakers & carrying a $600 Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a raise.
We will no longer accept a doctor statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.
Operations are now banned. As long as you are an employee here, you need all your organs. You should not consider removing anything. We hired you intact. To have something removed constitutes a breach of employment.
Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday & Sunday.
