INSIDE: CREATE SUCCESS WITH WHAT YOU WEAR
Clothing This special edition is dedicated to GSC employees dress and appearance guidelines. Provided with visuals, all employees will understand how to effectively dress appropriately for their occupation. Your personal appearance is a direct reflection of GSC and the manner in which we conduct business. As such, we require all employees to dress appropriately for their role. This policy defines standards to support our presentation to the community, provide consistent appearance across all locations, and promote a safe working environment. While working, and participating in business related events after hours, we expect you to adhere to this policy. GSC employees in uniform or wearing clothing that identifies you with GSC should be removed following your shift. As well as attending any non-work related social events. Clothing is required at all times. Apparel must be clean, neatly pressed, in good repair and appropriate for the job function. Some offices or positions may require the use of uniforms; however, those employees who are not required to wear a uniform are required to dress in a style that is no less than business casual. Fashions should not be too revealing and undergarments should not be exposed. Clothing that is considered unacceptable includes:
• Dresses or skirts shorter than three inches above the knee • Tight fitting attire such as “yoga pants” • Tank tops, low cut, exposed midriff tops, or see through materials • Items with print or symbols of an offensive nature
Acceptable: • Leggings may be worn (with a top that covers to mid-thigh) • Sleeveless blouses
Shoes Shoes must be clean, neat, in good condition, provide secure footing, and offer protection against hazards. Tennis shoes are permitted on days when excessive walking and standing are required as permitted by supervisors. When worn, tennis shoes must be coordinated with work apparel. "Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.” —Christian Louboutin
Sandals not flip flops
Strappy heels are not as practical as high heels or flats Wedges with reliable straps
Jewelry should be simple and tasteful; not distracting. These guidelines will help you determine acceptability. Visible or unusual body piercing/ modification is not permitted. Those must either be removed during work hours or covered for the entire work period in such a way as it cannot be seen directly or indirectly. Piercings (other than earrings) are not permitted. For safety, earrings may not be more than 2 inches past the ear lobe. Gauges and tongue rings are not permitted and must be removed. Remaining indications of prior gauges must not show. Rings must not be offensive or cause a safety concern. Necklaces must not contain offensive language, gestures, symbols or possible safety concerns.
Grooming Hair must be clean and well groomed. Coloring with conservative natural hues (i.e. browns, reds, blacks, blondes, and grays) is acceptable; however unnatural colors [extreme hair] and streaks are not acceptable. Your hair must not cover your face or name badge. For men, all facial hair must be trimmed and neat in appearance. As for appearance, wear better suited clothing for the job. If you know you will be doing strenuous work, belts will help support your pants and or other articles of clothing. Tattoos should be covered as much as possible. If your clothing cannot cover the tattoo, or would pose a safety risk if modified, you may use medical bandages to cover them. Distasteful, obscene, racially charged, or offensive tattoos may never be visible.
Odor and Hygiene is an integral part of an employeeâ€™s presentation to the community. Body odor, bad breath, cigarette smoke, etc. can be offensive to coworkers, residents and guests. Please take the necessary precautions (such as bathing and good dental hygiene) to limit offensive odors. In consideration of customers, co-workers, and vendors who have allergies, employees should minimize the use of scented powders, lotions, perfumes, and colognes. Your aroma is an integral part of how you present yourself to others.
You Should Not Wear: 1. Casual swim shorts and t-shirt 3. Low cut and exposed midriff top, tattered jeans 5. Sweater dress without leggings, incorrect shoes 7. Skirt length 9. Casual t-shirt and jeans
