When it comes to looking your best within the office, a lot of men try so hard and fall just short of the real deal. Now, images of what looks good and what doesn’t will change over time, but there is always going to be a few rules which will never go out of practice. We’re taking a look at how men can look sharp and professional in an office environment, without compromising on their sense of fashion.
So how do I, as a male, look my best?
If you’re working in an office and a room with other people, you’re going to want to look as good as you can while still seeming like a professional and competent man. This image can sometimes be difficult to achieve, but don’t worry about it!
To start off with, let’s take a look at what you’re wearing on a daily basis. Before you even begin looking at colour and design, the office wears you have should be well pressed, free of creases, and give the impression that you put time and effort into your appearance. This prior planning will ensure that regardless of what it is that you do wind up wearing, you look ready for action and you give the impression that you should command respect.
Moving on to the actual colours and designs of your outfit, however, there are certain rules which you should follow when possible. It should become standard practice for you to wear only darker and dull colours, such as black, grey or navy. This choice marks the appearance of someone who isn’t trying to draw attention to themselves and is instead just a professional here to do the job. The shirt that you wear should be white, but pinstripe shirts are acceptable if the entire ensemble is muted and doesn’t draw attention.
Moving onto footwear and accessories, it is important that you wear everyday and smart shoes when you’re at work. If you’re going to wear things like a belt and a watch, try and make sure that they are in good condition and also not too flashy. A professional man will be judged by his performance, and not by his attire, so you want to ensure that your abilities and skills are what people pay attention to, and not what the design of your watch is. Ties should be muted and not in patterns, and the waistcoat should be the same colour as the rest of your suit if you’re wearing one, but if not then it should match your pants.
Overall, these tips and tricks make up an excellent guide for men to follow when it comes to getting officewear just right. The work clothes or even ball gown dresses which you wear are part of your image, both as a person and as a professional, so it is important that you make as much effort with your appearance as possible. Muted shades of clothing, accessories which are in good condition and a well-pressed attire are the hallmarks of a professional, so it’s always good to emulate that.
Polygraph tests are used more and more frequently now by many companies. Businesses must be aware of the situations where polygraph tests should be used and also at what point to use them, if they need answers.
A reality of life is that people lie. And as many law enforcement officials have been trained, when people lie, there are typically ways in which this is shown. As an example, if someone is being dishonest, a common type of body language is that people will avoid eye contact, some fidget around and others will begin to sweat. Lie detector tests, i.e. polygraph tests take this concept and show it in a quantifiable way of recording reactions to questions. Measurements taken during a polygraph test include respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure and skin conductivity. These are all monitored and measured as questions are asked and subsequently answered by the participant. The theory applied is that the response given to questions where a truthful answer is given will provide specific measurements and then by comparing these results to the measurements obtained when an untruthful answer is given shows a difference. Therefore by applying this comparison technique, it is specific to that individual but shows the truthfulness of what is being said.
When to use a polygraph test
There are many instances when polygraph testing can be used:
Depending on the country, for criminal and civil law cases. Typically in the US, when there is a case in that hard evidence is not readily available or not sufficient, polygraph testing of the subjects is admissible. In many cases it is used in addition to evidence available and then to test the trustworthiness of a witness. Additionally, police often use polygraph tests in investigations, however, by law nobody can be forced to sit a polygraph test. On a further note about the legality of polygraph testing, the refusal to site such test cannot affect the outcome of a legal case.
Government agencies across the United States often use polygraph test as a pre-employment screening process for sensitive jobs or jobs with access to intelligence or sensitive data.
Any homeland security concern, in particular, many agencies such as the CIA, FBI and the NSA will use polygraph tests.
Commercially in companies whereby there is concern of fraud or employee theft. Companies often turn to polygraph examiners to help gauge the trustworthiness of employees.
Banks quite often use polygraph testing due to the fact that bank employees can often be responsible or at least have access to vast sums of money. Therefore, employee honesty is a factor that it commonly assessed within bank culture.
