Embroidered Polo Shirts for Stress Reduction
How you dress for work says a lot about you and the existing workplace culture. In one of my former careers, I was a desk-bound clerk in a Gov office. It was an interesting experience observing my colleagues arriving for work in a myriad of differing dress codes.
