At Infosys, now wear a jeans to work everyday!

Infosys never fails to surprise us with its new ways every now and then to connect better with the employees and arrest attrition. This time, it has done away with its dress code. Employees can now flaunt their business casuals all through the week instead of just Fridays. This is the latest in a series of moves by Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka who himself wears a black t-shirt teamed with a jacket in comparison to previous leaders who often wore Infosys monogrammed shirts for important events.

Infosys sent an email to all employees regarding this development last week. 'This was a change that many of you had voiced and requested on various platforms, so we are really excited that it is official now!' the mail said.

Further, the company said it believed that each of its employees is empowered to make the right decision regarding dress code. Culture-wise, this move has significance considering that a majority of Infosys employees are in their twenties, fresh out of college.

Last year, Sikka relaxed the company's long-held rule that said employees needed to wear ties after a number of employees asked him to scrap this rule. Infosys' rivals, such as TCS and Wipro allow employees to wear casuals only on Fridays whereas Cognizant relaxed the dress code a couple of years back.
