Did YOU know?
Many businesses TRIED a “No visible tattoos” policy in 2015 and failed?! Starbucks and the U.S. Army are two notable examples. Although both of these American institutions believed that tatted-up workers hurt their brand & image, they soon found that these valuable workers were welcomed elsewhere with open arms! Starbucks lost many of its current employees, while potential applicants with tattoos didn’t even apply. Additionally, the U.S. Army determined that exceptional soldiers were retiring early because of the negative policy. Both agencies, and many more, reversed course and did away with the antiquated policy that had cost them more money than it was worth.
