||Oracle Tips by Burleson
Some policies that employers promulgate may
seem to have little or no value. They may seem to have nothing to do
with the efficiency, orderliness, or safety of the IT job functions.
For example, the policy of requiring a network administrator to wear
only blue-colored shirts at first glance may seem to have little or
nothing to do with how organized or safely the employee builds a
network. However, many companies feel that by requiring an employee
to maintain a neat appearance also encourages organization,
neatness, and efficiency in their work.
On the other hand, consider the policy of
requiring network administrators to not wear a necktie. There is an
obvious safety reason for this policy since network administrators
are often crawling around under floor panels to lay new lines.
