Employment firm ‘Indeed’ carried out a survey of over 1,000 employees and 500 employers in the UK showing 33% of workers who WFH are wearing their pyjamas during shift hours! On average, employees are wearing pjs 46 days a year with one in twelve wearing their pjs every day.
More than half of workers admitted to wearing scruffier clothes on the bottom half and even included those attending interviews on video calls. One woman admitted she wore her dressing gown every day and was completely unaware how much weight she was putting on due to the loose-fitting belt!
Half of the employers surveyed said staff have become too casual and pjs should be avoided, closely followed by unwashed or messy hair and tracksuit bottoms.
Let’s hope we don’t have to start off video interviews by asking the interviewee to stand up to see if they are wearing tracksuit bottoms with a shirt and tie!
