Workers who dress smartly may be helped in the promotions process, a new poll has suggested.
According to Reed in its latest Employment Survey, 51 per cent of employees believe that dressing well can help a worker secure a promotion within a company.
It seems that ties are no longer worn by most people in the workplace, with 60 per cent of men claiming they never wear ties.
However, 40 per cent of workers wear formal business attire - such as a suit - to the office every day.
A further 47 per cent wear a more smart/casual look to work.
"The old adage dress for success clearly rings true, with the majority of office workers happily embracing their company's dress code and feeling proud to represent their brand," Lewis Woodward, head of network marketing at Reed, commented.
Mr Woodward added that he was surprised to hear dressing smartly is perceived by most people as "highly-relevant" to "advancing their careers".
This follows yesterday's news that older workers are becoming more confident in the workplace and are considering switching jobs.
