Casual Day 4: Casual Day Workshop

I'm publishing all 10 messages introducing the "Casual Day Program" I started just before leaving my now former employer.

For the previous Casual Day posts please click here and start reading from the bottom.

Week 2, Friday
A workshop on how to dress for Casual Day will be held today at 6:00 pm in the break room. A fashion show might follow. Attendance is mandatory.

As a preparation, please look up the following entries on Wikipedia:
  • smart casual
  • business casual

I received the following feedback from colleagues
  • In the morning an employee came to me, pointed at his (casual) clothes and asked if it was casual enough (another person did the same one hour later).
  • A techie told me he was impressed that HR now mentioned Wikipedia in their announcements.
  • At 5:55 pm somebody shouted from the hallway "Hey HR! What are you doing in your office? We have a meeting in 5 minutes!"
