Disney Makes Employee Dress Code More “Inclusive”

From the Disney Parks corporate blog:

Our new approach provides greater flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, and costume choices; and allowing appropriate visible tattoos.

We’re updating them to not only remain relevant in today’s workplace, but also enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work.

Moving forward, we believe our cast, who are at the center of the magic that lives in all our experiences, can provide the best of Disney’s legendary guest service when they have more options for personal expression – creating richer, more personal and more engaging experiences with our guests.

There’s much more at the link. In recent weeks, Disney employees have been verbally and physically abused by patrons unwilling to comply with mask rules and other COVID protocols. The relaxed dress code may be part an employee retention drive.
