After sheltering in place for the better part of eight weeks, Minneapolis agency Public Works has said screw it to getting half-dressed for Zoom meetings and carrying on the façade of on-camera readiness and presentability. The agency has now adopted a new policy in what it’s calling Quarantine Casual. The policy was kicked-off this week with the delivery (contactless-delivery, of course) of agency-issued, unisex sweat suits. By completely giving up on appearance and focusing on extreme comfort, the agency expects to see a rise in its already-productive productivity during this work-from-home time. Although when reached for comment, Public Works Partner and Creative Lead, Brian Hurley, was eating a stale Chili Frito Pie in his recliner and too comfortable to un-recline and get to his phone.
Speaking on behalf of the agency, Operations Lead, Sarah Maki, was quick to point out that, “This doesn’t mean people get to relax on their time sheets, we will be tracking everyone’s comfort to productiveness quotient, so please get your timesheets in.”
There was no statement on whether or not the agency will continue the Quarantine Casual policy past any future Stay-at-Home orders, but I think we can all agree that no one wants to see these outfits out in public.
