Swiss bank UBS is making the news because its rather conservative dress code just got released. Women are told that "light makeup consisting of foundation, mascara and discreet lipstick . . . will enhance your personality," and there are also proscriptions against nail art, black nail polish, and letting your roots grow out.
Though some of the advice is a little much, more of it seems like well-meaning — if rather old-fashioned — guidelines for bankers. For instance: "A good hairstyle is essential in pleasing others as well as yourself, and also contributes in a definitive way to your well-being." UBS also recommends avoiding garlic, wearing dark suits, and wearing too much fragrance. The company says these are guidelines, not rules, but do you think they're appropriate?
