Allow Chick-Fil-A Employees to Have Beards

I would like for Chick-Fil-A to reevaluate their dress code policy, specifically the rules regarding facial hair. The current "mustache only" rule, even if it is for religious reasons, is outdated. Short, clean beards can be a very professional look. This is why I believe the policy should be reconsidered.

Why is this important?

This is important because the mustache only look is not appealing for the guests. Also, beards can be a great look. It's important for the employees to feel good about themselves. Ones level of self-esteem, according to 'Simple Psychology' online, affects how you deal with people and situations. They went on to say, "people with high self-esteem focus on growth and improvement, whereas people with low self-esteem focus on not making mistakes in life."

Reasons for signing

  • Had a beard before working at cfa. I feel like being allowed to keep a well kept, short beard would have a positive impact on the self image of young men employed by cfa.
  • Its a little unnecessary to keep people from looking the way they look.
  • I work for IT, never dealing with food. My work should never be based on how I look.
