PKF O’Connor Davies Introduces “Dress for Your Day” Employee Benefit
Flexible Dress Code Policy Encourages Workers to Wear What Fits with Their Day’s Schedule
New York, NY (March 26, 2019) – PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP, one of the nation’s largest accounting, tax and advisory firms, announced today its new “Dress for Your Day” program. The program gives employees the flexibility to select their comfortable, professional work attire based on their schedule for that particular day.
“For our team members, every day is a little bit different. Some days, employees need to wear a business suit to a client meeting. On other days, a pair of jeans and nice shirt may be more appropriate,” said Dawn Perri, Chief Human Resources Officer. “When we launched this program as a pilot initiative, we received tremendous feedback. People enjoyed letting a bit more personality shine through in how they dressed for their day.”
Dress for Your Day was designed with the understanding that appearances can make a diffrerence, not only to the Firm’s existing and prospective clients, but also in setting a positive tone in the workplace, especially for those offices that regularly receive visitors. The Firm encourages all team members to take pride in their appearance and individuality while enhancing a positive and appropriate image of the Firm.
“We want to foster a welcoming and comfortable environment where our team members can do their best work,” said Kevin J. Keane, Managing Partner. “We’re always looking for ways to refine our culture, and we’re excited to extend this offer as a permanent perk to all our employees.”
PKF O’Connor Davies has 11 offices in five states as it continues to expand through organic growth and acquisitions on the East Coast. It puts particular emphasis on creating a positive and productive employee culture throughout its locations, including acting on employee feedback, growing careers through mentoring and promoting from within and maintaining a good work-life balance.
