    In Other Words, if we look like slobs, we won’t receive the respect we, as employees, deserve.
  • 3. Benefits of the Dress Code
    Promotes professionalism
    Promotes colleague self worth
    Builds trust with the customer
    Promotes equality between colleagues
    Speaking Notes:
    The weekend individual (no one here i’m sure) may be sitting out on a patio with a beer, fishing pole, and cussing like a sailor-that isn’t professional, dressing in an unprofessional manner may promote bad behavior.
    By dressing up, our minds ready themselves for the task at hand. Looking good helps me feel good.
    ask yourself “Would I do business with the Weekend me?” I know I wouldn’t! I look like I’m 14 on the weekends with my hat and pig tails sticking out the back.
    Some colleagues have better fashion sense than others! If we want to be treated similarly, we have to dress similarly.
  • 4. Executive Dress Code-Male
    Speaking Notes:
    Officers and those COLLEAGUES who work in Leadership Roles dress in this attire Monday through Thursday
  • 5. Executive Dress Code-Female
    Speaking Notes:
    Professional Business Clothing – This is standard business attire that includes suits or
    sport coats. Choose this type of clothing when meeting with outside customers (unless the
    Customer’s attire dictates otherwise), attending business meetings, or conducting other
    official company business.
  • 6. Colleagues Mon-Thurs
    Speaking Notes: Also considered Friday Attire for Execs.
    Shirts (not t-shirts) or blouses that have a small/conservative monogram such as Liz
    Claiborne, Chaps, OU, OSU, Country Club names, American Fidelity, etc. are acceptable.
    • Jeans are acceptable ONLY on Designated Jeans Days*; however, for special situations, a
    Manager may allow a Colleague to wear jeans on other days if the work environment
    and/or job responsibilities require jeans.**
    * For Designated Jeans days please refer to the Holiday/Casual Day Schedule.
    **Examples of special situations: performing physical labor, installing computers, working in
    the basement, etc.
    • T-shirts and sweat shirts are acceptable ONLY on designated days. Company sponsored t-shirts
    and sweatshirts may be worn with jeans ONLY on Designated Jeans Days.
    • Athletic Shoes/Tennis Shoes are acceptable ONLY when walking the halls for exercise, when
    going to/from fitness center or parking lot, when worn for medical reasons certified with a
    doctor’s note, or when wearing Jeans on Jeans Days.
  • 7. Casual Fridays
    Speaking Notes:
    Jeans – Choose jeans that are clean, neat, and in good condition (no holes, patches, or
    extra length,). Jeans are pants made from denim fabric (any color) or from another type of
    fabric (example: corduroy) AND have the double top-stitching and/or “metal brads” on the
    seams and/or pockets like denim jeans typically have.
  • 8. Speaking Notes:
    Mini-skirts/mini-dresses
    • Clothing that exposes abdomen, chest, or buttocks (either standing still or moving)
    • Thin strapped or backless dresses and blouses (unless worn with a sweater or outer jacket)
    • Work-out clothing
    • Shorts and Leggings
    • Halter Tops/Muscle Shirts/Tank Tops
    • Transparent clothing (unless properly lined)
    • Graphics (pictures/slogans/advertisements/etc) unless company sponsored (i.e., Great Place to
    Work, etc)
  • 9. Tattoos, Hair, and Piercings
    Speaking Notes:
    1Tattoos need to be concealed while at work; however, if a COLLEAGUE has a tattoo
    located in a place that cannot be easily concealed (examples: a person with short hair has
    a tattoo on the back of the neck, a person has a tattoo on the back of the hand or around
    the ankle), then the tattoo may remain visible, as long as it is not offensive and it is free
    from immodesty, obscenity, and profanity; otherwise, the tattoo must still be concealed,
    even if it is difficult to do so. COLLEAGUES with tattoos on the arm, shoulder, torso, calf
    or thigh should always have them concealed.
    2Earrings worn in ear lobes are acceptable; however, all other body piercing jewelry should
    not be visible while at work.
    All COLLEAGUE’S hair should be clean and a natural hair color (green, purple, blue, etc. are not acceptable).
