'Goldman Sachs relaxes dress code for all employees'


Like Comment

The investment bank announced the "firm-wide flexible dress code" in an internal memo, urging employees to use "good judgement" in their fashion choices.

Goldman Sachs loosened the dress code for its tech division in 2017, in a bid to appeal to top talent.

Other banks like JP Morgan have taken similar steps.

In a widely cited memo, the US bank said the "changing nature of workplaces generally in favour of a more casual environment" had prompted the move to a "firm wide flexible dress code". 

"Casual dress is not appropriate every day and for every interaction and we trust you will consistently exercise good judgement in this regard," the memo read. 

    Goldman's announcement is aimed at bringing the bank's policies up to date for its younger workforce. 

    More than 75% of Goldman employees are members of the Millennial or Gen Z generations - people born after 1981
