The UK's only dedicated recruitment agency review site www.HireScores.com surveyed 1,276 members of the British public in different professions to see what the greatest factors in improving productivity in the office were.

...

Of the women who thought that the way they dressed affected the way that they performed at work over half, 53% said that dressing ‘provocatively' helped their productivity, whilst 54% said that they liked to dress smart. Less than 1 in 10, 8% said that casual clothes improved the way they work.

63% of men that said the way they dressed affected their performance said that smart clothes made them more productive, whilst one third said that they preferred to wear casual clothes in the workplace.

Of the people surveyed, 69% said that the weather affected the way that they worked with more than 6 in 10, 62%, saying that the sun shining made them work better in the office. A quarter of people said that nice weather actually made them less productive as they then found it difficult to concentrate.

The factors that affect productivity in the office:

1. What you wear - 78%

2. Weather - 69%

3. Your colleagues - 65%

4. Breaks - 59%

5. Workload - 57%

6. Support - 53%

7. Facilities - 41%

8. Decor - 37%

9. Equipment - 27%

10. Music - 23%

23% of those surveyed said that music in the office was important, with just over half of these 51% saying that if they were allowed to listen to music they would be more productive.

Obviously not an American poll as women here would think dressing provocatively is demeaning and couldn't possibly contribute to increased production.

Right, like American women don't dress provocatively.

They do, but they don't admit to doing it to increase productivity. They do it "for themselves because that's just how they like to dress" and not so everyone else can share in what they offer to the team.

And Jenn, they don't! American women just don't ever. J/K hehe.

I do find it demeaning if a woman thinks she has to dress a certain way in the office to get attention/promotions. Still not sure how it affects their productivity. Do you type more words per minute dressed one way vs another? Maybe the color of your clothes can even help!

This is from the original article, although not part of my excerpt:

Lisette Howlett, Managing Director of HireScores.com said;

...

"I was curious as to why women feel productive when they dress more provocatively and having checked this out concluded that this is because it gives them a sense of empowerment which in turn makes them more confident in the office. Indeed feeling confident and positive seem to be two key factors to high work performance"
