PSC implements dress code

The staff of the Public Service Commission now has to abide by a compulsory formal work dress code.
In an internal memo circulated within the PSC, all officers are now required to dress formally during work hours.
The Commission’s Permanent Secretary, Parmesh Chand says there have been reports of some workers not adhering to the dress code.
“It has come to our attention that some people were not properly attired. There was no consistency in uniforms that we had purchased ourselves. We are not trying to get people to adhere to the rules.”
Chand adds they have had no choice but to enforce the regulation.
“The dress code is being emphasized and enforced as part of our initiate to make staff look smarter and to be well presented. They are all aware of what is required of them.”
Chand says this is part of a restructure to get all civil servants to comply with the rules so that they’re responsible in the roles they play.
The Commission intends to extend the rules to other ministries in future.
