First impressions count. This is particular message Swiss bank UBS AG is actually posting their Swiss retail banking staff members with a 43-page code dispensing suggestions about the way to impress customers by using a polished look.
Echoing rules applied at Swiss boarding schools, UBS's guidelines exceed a list of dress "do's" and "don'ts" by providing hygiene as well as grooming guidelines often filled with aphorisms worthy of design as well as magazines on beauty.
The move is definitely an aspect associated with a test UBS is performing in Switzerland throughout 5 preliminary branches. It follows a recent marketing campaign geared towards re-establishing self-confidence within the Swiss bank's brand and restoring relations with customers.
The UBS Dress Code: Do's and Don'ts
Wear your jacket buttoned.
When sitting, the buttons should be unfastened.
Make sure to touch up hair regrowth regularly if you color your hair.
- Store your suit on a large hanger with rounded shoulders to preserve the shape of the garment.
- Schedule barber appointments every four weeks to maintain your haircut shape.
Don'ts (Seems to apply to both men and women)
Eating garlic and onions
Smoking or spending time in smoke-filled places
Wearing short-sleeved shirts or cuff links
Wearing socks that are too short, showing your skin while sitting
Allowing underwear to be seen
Touching up perfume during or after lunch break
