A British office has certainly taken all the hassle out of picking out something to wear to work, they’ve participated in, Naked Friday!
According to the ninemsn report:
“Staff at a marketing company in Britain have gone to work naked after being told it would boost morale. David Taylor, a business psychologist, told the employees at onebestway the company strip-off would be an ideal way to regain trust following recent redundancies. Team manager Sam Jackson, 23, said the idea – dubbed “Naked Friday” – was a big success.
“It was brilliant … now that we’ve seen each other naked, there are no barriers,” she told The Sun newspaper. “We weren’t put under any pressure – if we wanted to come in clothed or in our underwear, we could. “But I love my body and I wasn’t ashamed.”
Mr Taylor worked with the staff for almost a week to help lower their inhibitions, including sessions where the workers photocopied their private parts and met with a nude model. When Naked Friday arrived, nearly all of the workers went completely nude – only two chose to wear underwear.
“Inviting an organisation to go naked is the most extreme technique I’ve used,” Mr Taylor said. “It may seem weird but it works … it’s the ultimate expression of trust in yourself and each other.” The experiment was filmed for a one-off reality TV show, called Naked Office, to be screened in Britain next week.”
Really in this day and age a story like this shouldn’t be that shocking. Not that I was shocked, but maybe a little disturbed! The article states that employees weren’t put under any pressure to participate, but if you didn’t want to participate then it’s likely that you didn’t want to see your colleagues in the buff either!
Let’s just hope they didn’t schedule any meetings that day with some unsuspecting clients!
