Did you say casual Monday?
The Chicago-based accounting firm of Baker Tilly Virchow has launched a pilot program allowing its professionals to wear jeans any day of the week they deem it appropriate. No longer will denim be confined to Casual Friday, a fairly common practice in the profession.
Such a practice is fairly unusual in the buttoned-down profession. “If Baker Tilly is jeans every day, they’re probably leading the way on that,” said Todd Shapiro, president and CEO of the Illinois CPA Society in Chicago.
