Below is an excerpt from You and Regions for your immediate review. After your start-date, you will have access to the entire policy on life@regions, our corporate intranet site. As a new Regions associate, you are responsible for reading and becoming familiar with all policies in You and Regions.

Regions expects you as its representative, to dress appropriately in compliance with the requirements set forth in this guideline.

As this guideline is meant to provide general guidance and cannot include every specific example of attire that is allowed or prohibited, Associates must apply appropriate judgment at all times in their choice of clothing to wear to work. If you are uncertain about what type of attire may be suitable for work, please contact your supervisor.

Location Requirements

Dress code standards are defined by your assigned work location.

Associates assigned to Regions' corporate headquarters, business market headquarters, branch offices, or any other location where Associates engage in regular in-person face-to-face contact with customers or the public may observe Business Casual Dress (defined below) throughout the work week.

Associates assigned to locations where Associates do not engage in regular, face-to-face contact with customers or the public, such as operations centers and/or other Regions buildings with restricted access that do not host clients, may observe Casual Dress (defined below) throughout the work week. However, Associates assigned to these locations are expected to dress in attire appropriate to the particular occasion (e.g., Business Dress, Business Casual Dress, other attire) when they host on-site meetings with outside parties or attend off-site meetings or attend meetings at locations that require business casual or other dress.

Standards for All Associates

You are expected to use good judgment, and should dress as suitably and as business-like as required for your facility. Regardless of your assigned work location, you are required to comply with the below standards:

  • Visible personal decorations such as tattoos or body piercings (other than non-distracting earrings) should be covered or removed during working hours.
  • Multi-colored or other hairstyles that are distracting are not permissible in the workplace.
  • All attire must be clean and neat with no frayed hems, rips, or holes.
  • All clothing must be maintained at an appropriate length for the office.
  • You are expected to use good grooming and hygiene practices.
  • The use of any scented products such as perfume, body spray, after shave lotion and other scented products should be subtle and not offensive to Associates or customers.

The following are examples of prohibited attire for any location. These examples are illustrative and not all-inclusive:

Casual Dress

Not all casual clothing is appropriate for work. Clothing that works well for exercise, vacations or your personal social activities may not be appropriate for the Regions workplace, which is a business environment. In addition to the above regarding business casual attire, authorized Casual dress can include:

  • Denim jeans, jackets, and skirts with no distracting logos, decorations, patches, frayed edges, holes, or rips
  • Casual pants such as cargo pants, corduroy jeans, and casual linen pants
  • Casual shirts (non-collared shirts, turtlenecks, polo and golf shirts with small logos)

Jeans are not allowed at branches or headquarters locations other than for infrequent dress-down days that are preapproved within a department or business unit by the respective Senior Executive Vice President (SEVP) responsible for that branch, department or business unit. Jeans may also be approved by the appropriate SEVP as part of a special, officially-designated, building-wide event or city-wide event.

Dress Code for Business Community Events and Client Interaction

Associates in roles that require-interacting with customers or potential customers in person and outside of the Regions workplace, should choose attire suitable for the environment or location of the client visit. Further, when representing the company at some business community events, Business Dress may be required.


If you fail to dress in accordance with this guideline, you will be required to take corrective action, including going home to change upon being directed to do so. Non-exempt Associates will not be paid for time spent to correct dress code violations.

If you have a legitimate need to deviate from these guidelines such as for medical or religious reasons, you must contact Human Resources at 877-562-8383 or HRConnect@regions.com to request an accommodation.
