Apparently, there is truth to the adage 'dress for success'.
Research shows your alertness is affected by what you wear.
One study found that people wearing a doctor’s lab coat displayed heightened attention.
When the same people then wore an identical coat but were told it was a painter’s coat, they weren't as attentive as when they wore (what they perceived to be) the doctor's coat.
The research found: “The influence of clothes thus depends on wearing them and their symbolic meaning.”

If you or your team dress up, please share a picture on our FB page.
