I don't get it. First the high tech companies - such as Sprint - complain about not being about to attract and retain high-tech employees. Now, they decide to impose an antiquated and pointless dress code on the very employees they claim to want to retain. According to Sprint even Dockers are not 'dressy' enough. While I normally pride myself in being loyal, I'd quite my current job as a webmaster and go elsewhere if my employer ever decided that what I wear is more important than how I do my job. Many Sprint employees will likely do the same. It makes no sense to impose such an old-fashioned mandate on what people can wear to the office - especially in the middle of a major heat wave. Let's see how much time passes before Sprint complains about not being able to attract enough qualified employees.
A casual dress code is often a strong selling point for attracting and retaining high-tech workers as well as those in other industries.
It doesn't seem like there's really that much of a labor shortage when corporate America decides to end an employee benefit that costs nothing.
In the meantime, I refuse to use Sprint for my long distance or cellular communications.
