Despite slightly conservative leanings when it comes to dress codes, the majority of respondents still value one day a week when they can dress down.
"Casual Friday gives employees a chance to be a bit more relaxed and it is great for morale," said one woman. Another man agreed and said "It is nice to feel like we get a break from the normal day-to-day constraints."
However, some people said casual dress should not be allowed on Fridays when there are meetings with executives, or for customer-facing employees. Furthermore, approximately 6 percent of people said "Casual Friday" is actually bad for the office environment.
"Shouldn't a company want to come across as professional as possible regardless of the day of the week?" said one respondent.
