This year some companies will start “cool biz season” earlier than usual.
“Cool biz season” means that salarymen don’t wear a tie and can wear more casual during the summer season.
This is because it is estimated that there will be a large energy shortage this summer in Japan.
If you will not be able to use AC, you can’t bear a hot meeting room without a window or being in a tall building in which you can’t open any windows.
I always think that we don’t need a tie and suit in every season.
Those clothes are just for old Japanese business customs which include many ceremonious meetings, needless greetings and agreements, etc.
We should rethink and omit the old business customs.
Eventually we will not need any our ties and suits at all.
Moreover “cool biz season” isn’t enough to work healthy.
Which do you choose, working healthy or traditional business customs?
