More than half of those who responded to an informal poll on SHRM's Twitter account say that Halloween costumes are OK -- within reason -- in their workplace.
The spooky October holiday allows some employees to take a break from normal business attire, but can also create a few headaches for human resources professionals.
Halloween often requires HR to manage office costume parties that still follow company dress code policies, don't violate office safety guidelines and aren't spoiled by offensive costumes. With all of the scary stories of daily HR work out there, at some point HR professionals might wonder if Halloween is worth celebrating at the office at all.
Then again, not everyone has the benefit of year-round free candy working at the world's largest chocolate manufacturer.
So take heart, HR professionals navigating this ominous fall holiday: the real scary stuff of overtime regulations and open enrollment is just around the corner.
