Funny memos on Casual Friday

25 Nov 2011

The HR department is well known for their many notes to employees. The HRM team has found a list of funny memos on Casual Fridays taken from http://www.ahajokes.com/off29.html that is guaranteed to cheer up your Friday.

Casual Fridays:

First week

Effective this week, the company is adopting Fridays as Casual Day. Employees are free to dress in the casual attire of their choice.

3 weeks later

Spandex and leather micro-miniskirts are not appropriate attire for Casual Day. Neither are string ties, rodeo belt buckles or slippers.

6 weeks later

Casual Day refers to dress only, not attitude. When planning Friday's wardrobe, remember image is a key to our success.

8 weeks later

A seminar on how to dress for Casual Day will be held at 4 p.m. Friday in the cafeteria. A fashion show will follow. Attendance is mandatory.

9 weeks later

As an outgrowth of Friday's seminar, a 14-member Casual Day Task Force has been appointed to prepare guidelines for proper casual-day dress.

14 weeks later

The Casual Day Task Force has now completed a 30-page manual entitled "Relaxing Dress Without Relaxing Company Standards." A copy has been distributed to every employee. Please review the chapter "You Are What You Wear" and consult the "home casual" versus "business casual" checklist before leaving for work each Friday. If you have doubts about the appropriateness of an item of clothing, contact your CDTF representative before 7 a.m. on Friday.

18 weeks later

Our Employee Assistant Plan (EAP) has now been expanded to provide support for psychological counseling for employees who may be having difficulty adjusting to Casual Day.

20 weeks later

Due to budget cuts in the HR Department we are no longer able to effectively support or manage Casual Day. Casual Day will be discontinued, effective immediately.

I chuckled when I read this, however as a corporate image consultant I'm often asked to address many of the image faux pas mentioned. People don't know what they they don't know.
