Update PACCAR dress code and shaving policies
Eliminate formal business attire and men's shaving requirements
Why is this important?
The PACCAR formal dress code and shaving policies are out of step with current workplace norms. By eliminating them, employees will be more comfortable while they work and commute. Certain positions may continue to require a formal appearance, but other companies in our industry were able to make these changes decades ago.
This is also true of the shaving requirement for men. Shaving doesn't improve performance or commitment to the company. It doesn't increase truck sales. It prevents employees from being themselves and turns personal grooming habits into a management decision.
These easily implemented changes would show that PACCAR is an adaptable business and cares about and respects employees. Please consider making these changes as soon as possible.
