Has anyone noticed that it’s got a little hot recently?
The office scene here at AccountingWEB towers tells a similar story to that of offices up and down the country; windows are cranked open while the workers aimlessly flap their hands in front their faces like a rudimentary hand fan.
Outside of the obligatory “oh I like the sun but this is too hot” office kitchen chat (clearly, forgetting the dreaded beast from the east earlier this year), the other standard office worker response to such weather is to don shorts.
Now while Hawaiian shorts may be out of the question, could there be an allowance under such heat for accountants to swap their standard business attire for something a little more ventilated?
Or is office wear not season-negotiable? After all, you wouldn’t wear a quilted Eskimo-style coat during a winter client meeting, so why should you dress for the beach during a heat wave?
Where does your firm stand? Is it acceptable to ditch normal office wear for the comfort of shorts or summer wear?
(P.S I am wearing shorts.)
