Infosys has ushered in a dress code change for its employees. From now, they can choose to wear smart business casuals right through the week as CEO Vishal Sikka takes more steps to remain connected with his workforce.

In an e-mail addressed to employees, Sikka said, “From Monday, June 1, 2015, you can flaunt your smart business casuals all week long! Yes, you can read it right! Your favorite pair of jeans teamed with t-shirt you love can now be worn every day, going forward. This was a change that many of you had voiced and requested on various platforms, so we are really excited that it is official now!”

The earlier Infosys dress code had formals as routine, with a tie for the first two days of the week; the next two days had formal wear without ties; and on Fridays people could wear casuals.

Ever since Sikka took over as CEO in August last year, he has been seen in a black t-shirt paired with a jacket. Earlier, Infosys executives wore formals during all their media interactions.

The e-mail also stated, “We believe that each of you is empowered to make the right decision and dress in a way that will make Infosys proud.”

Infosys, which has 1.76 lakh employees, has over half of them under 30. The new policy comes with an incentive — Infosys has promised employees a chance to win prizes for dressing smart.
