Since she started working here, at least once a month she comes back from her lunch wearing drastically different clothes, shoes, makeup, and nails and she has radically changed her hair (color and length) over her lunch half a dozen times.I don’t know if I should say anything because as her older, male boss I don’t want to seem like I am appearance policing, and also because she is always within the norm for the dress code/appearance within our office and industry (professional clothes, hair only dyed natural colors).Przyjrzyjmy się przez chwilę ludziom, którzy rozszerzyli znaną maksymę humanistów do „Nic, co ZIEMSKIE, nie jest mi obce”.„Ziemskie”, tak właśnie opisywał swoje zamiłowania jeden z badanych zoofili.
There are no issues with the quality of her work, but there is something that I think is an issue — but I am not sure if I should bring it up with her or not.
She doesn’t carry a purse or backpack, so when she shows up with different clothes and without her old ones, people do notice.
She says she puts her old clothes in a donation bin at the mall and has told people she will buy things at the thrift store near her home for the purpose of wearing to work on days when she is going to buy new stuff at the mall.
If so, how do I do it so as to not to make it about her appearance but rather how it affects her professionalism and how people perceive her, even there are no problems with her work and she is making all these changes on her lunch and not when she is expected to be working? I can see why it feels a little off to you though — I suspect it’s rooted in feeling like part of professionalism is presenting yourself in a way where the attention is on your work rather than on your clothes, hair, nails, or so forth. There are some offices where this would come across as being overly focused on appearance in a way that would read as not-serious.
And it must be hard not to focus on those things when she’s coming in with one set of clothes/hair/nails and then dramatically changing them halfway through the day. But those are probably a minority of offices rather than a majority.
