IBT Media Does Not Tolerate Slobs or Midriffs

IBT Media logo GIf you have any intention of working for IBT Media, the owner of Newsweek, you had better be prepared to cover your dreamcatcher belly ring. Politico reports that not only are IBT Media staffers banned from saying anything negative about the company, they must also dress nicely and keep their stomachs covered.

Here’s an excerpt from IBT Media’s employee handbook:

Midriffs are to be covered. Denim jeans, sweat suits, low-rise pants, sneakers, sandals, flip-flops, halter tops, camisoles, baseball caps, sweat suits, T-shirts, tank tops, micro mini-skirts, shorts or anything else that is deemed unprofessional or excessively distracting are inappropriate business attire and should not be worn to work. Hair should be clean, combed and neatly trimmed or arranged.

The best part about this is that someone had to have come to work with their stomach hanging out in order for a policy like this to be implemented. Whoever you are, FishbowlNY salutes you.
