(Allison Romero, Jeffrey Shapiro and Andrea Cox of the Arstein & Lehr law firm, dressed as members of the Addams Family for last year's Halloween bash, plan to celebrate again this year, part of the firm's morale-boosting efforts)
Are you dressing up at work today? If you are, experts say go with the fun or spooky costume rather than the racy one.
Of course, almost any costume can become sexy. My hubbie wore a Fred Flintstone costume and said the women were touching his hairy chest all day. Who knew?
If you have a sexy costume that your wore over the weekend, you might want to modify it for the office -- consider wearing a sweater or wear some tights.
"It's not worth risking your reputation for a day of fun," Heather Brock, a labor lawyer for Fowler White Boggs in Fort Lauderdale told the Sun-Sentinel. She said that employers should stay away from politics or religion in the workplace when they consider what costume to wear. But she also advices to encourage employees not to overreact to the Halloween fun.
For those of you who are single, you might want to take note of this: Halloween ranks favourably as a time to meet a potential mate. The Vancouver Sun reports that both men and women said they would be more attracted to someone wearing a Halloween costume -- of course, men go for women in sexy costumes and women go for men in funny costumes.
In a Miami Herald article today, I wrote about how some companies use Halloween as a morale booster to lift employee spirits in a effort to finish the year strong.
I love that some workplaces have Halloween parties and encourage workers to dress up. Do you think it makes a difference in morale? If you're discouraged from celebrating Halloween at work, does it put you in a bad mood at work today?
