And especially don’t make any proud comments about the aroma. I was thinking more along the lines of pizza on the last Friday of the month, or the office closes down the week after Christmas. I think what you posted is a social rule applicable everywhere except Elbonia. I found out the hard way that at my office we must always where a shirt and shoes. And that means one or the other or both. We have a lot of things that are done and attributed to the “Company Culture”. During meetings one is not allowed to lay blame for project failures, etc. Now we have a new “problem”. Until recently all employees whether hourly factory or salaried office worked at the same place. So all rules applied evenly to all employees. But now that the office is at a different location, an awful lot of consideraton is given to the “Us vs. Them” mentality. We can’t us an empty floor to build an employee fitness center at the office because the hourly plant workers (who would be able to use it) would feel slighted at having to drive to it.
