This is a bit of a touchy subject!
On the one hand we have to take the corporate training modules every year, telling us about appropriate workplace behaviour, what we can say and do
and what we can't, and on the other hand it's a natural reaction to react to a pleasantly presented member of the opposite sex.
I find it rather ironic that at the campus where I work, we have an HR manager, of all people, who dresses like a high class hooker all the time - 5
inch heeled stilettos, short skirts, tight fitting tops etc. The whole package just screams "LOOK AT ME". However, she complained a few weeks back
about some contractors working nearby for wolf whistling at her...
I'm not saying females at the office should dress in formless ankle length sackcloth, but if they put it all on display for effect, they should
expect that people are naturally going to look.
The whole male thing with shapr suits etc is, in my humble opinion, just for show anyway. I have seen those suits make ridiculous decisions over the
years but the dress seems to be there to imply confidence and competence.... it does neither. Case in point - Bankers - sharp suits but untrustworthy
and obviously incapable of making right decisions!
Personal opinion.... it's the person's ability to do the job that matters, not the way they dress and anyway, a wazzle pair of jugs tends to
brighten up the working day at the office!
