After having a survey of different organizations and taking advice of experts, The Roorkee College of Engineering (RCE) decided to provide dress code for the students for following reasons:
- Industry demands: There are certain service industries which are focused on the customer. These industries demand that the workforce look more united so the role of the uniform becomes very important.
- Uniform as perks: In some large organizations, it is considered as an honour and a kind of perk to receive uniform. This results in considerable conservation of time and energy of the personnel, as he doesn’t have to choose again and again the clothes to be worn at the workplace. Also a lot of money is saved since rarely the personnel will be buying new clothes.
- A sense of belonging: If the work force wears the same clothes to the work place then they share a feeling of commonness and belonging, which otherwise gets very difficult to achieve.
- A feeling of equality: Uniform brings everyone to the same platform, no matter how rich or poor he or she is and thus inculcating a feeling of equality amongst those wearing the uniform.
- Mutual growth: People wearing uniform are more caring for their fellows and colleagues, they care not only for their growth but the growth of their peers as well. Uniform is very important and foster traits which are very necessary for a person as an individual and an organization as a whole to thrive and prosper.
RCE believes in NO DISCRIMINATION between their students and hence the dress code is compulsory for the students of RCE.
