My company (I own it) has a simple grooming standard. As long as you look and act professional, I don't care. In my line of work, it wouldn't make that much difference for most employees to have a Duck Dynasty beard, however, the senior managers and sales professionals would have a hard time looking professional in our industry to our clients if we did. The IT guys that work for me religiously observe "No Shave November." Most have a beard year round. I'm more concerned with combed hair and clean ironed cloths than what they have on their chin. The one female IT employee I have says she's also observing "No Shave November" but I have no way to verify that, nor do I wish to verify it. I just take her word for it, and try real hard not to think about it, since it gives me the shivers when I do.
