Should European Biotech CEOs wear more sneakers?

17/10/2014 - 3 minutes

Today is Friday or Casual Day. Did you leave the suit and the tie at home to wear jeans and sneakers? Should you have done so?

More and more people do so on Friday but also the rest of the week.

Unformal Jobs-Zuckerberg-Niel

The American Tech industry and the Silicone Valley started the movement. Steve Jobs is probably the most iconic one with his old New Balance, old Jean and the same Pull-over. Mark Zuckerberg and the “hoodie-fashion” is another good example. This more informal way of working has also crossed the atlantic. More and more CEO’s stop wearing suit to wear hoodies or just a simple shirt as for exemple Xavier Niel, very successful French entrepreneur and founder of telecom company Free. He wears a basic white shirt everyday even if his fortune is worth several billion euros.

This movement is now the rule in the Tech industry, both in America and Europe, but what about the Biotech Industry?
