PREVIEW: A Casual Workplace


As you’re getting ready for work, chances are fewer of you are putting on a suit and tie than a decade ago.

Across the country and here in KELOLAND, more companies are letting employees dress more casual.  KELOLAND’s Casey Wonnenberg is taking a look at the trend.

From Sioux Falls company Lemonly to Wall Street titan Goldman Sachs, more companies are ditching the formal dress code. 

That also includes Sioux Falls city employees. When Mayor Paul TenHaken took office, he implemented a “dress for your day” policy.

“Like every employer we’re trying to recruit and retain talent. Anything that we can do to help in that recruitment and retainment effort we do,” TenHaken said.

Casey Wonnenberg: Tuesday on KELOLAND News take a closer look at the trend. Hear from companies that are embracing casual clothes and the reasoning behind TenHaken’s policy. 

I’ll also head to SDSU and talk to students and a professor who are studying fashion.
