Reuters - Goldman changes casual dress policy for some

Flip Flops

Dressed to impress ?

Reuters reports that traditionally buttoned-up Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs has relaxed the dress code for its computer engineers in a bid to attract tech talent with a more casual environment.

The bank told employees in its technology division to "exercise judgement in determining when to adapt to business attire," according to an internal memo from late June seen by Reuters on Thursday.

It did not specify whether hoodies or sneakers, the ad-hoc uniform of millennial tech workers, constitute acceptable dress.

The move, one of the first by Goldman's new chief information officer Elisha Wiesel, comes as the bank makes a push to recruit and keep hold of top tech talent in the face of intensifying competition.

The majority of the bank's employees still adhere to a professional business dress code unless told otherwise by their group's manager.
