An overwhelming section of the c-suite is going the way of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – taking a casual approach to dressing, driving and dining, according to a recent survey by job website CareerBuilder.ca.
According to the study of 400 hiring managers, including CEOs and the senior leadership team, 69 per cent of executives go half-Zuck (or business casual as the non-Silicon Valleyers call it), while 18 per cent go full-Zuck regularly slumming it in jeans or shorts in the office. Surprisingly, less than one in 10 execs regularly rock out in a suit.
As for the chariot of choice, 83 per cent forego the white-gloved chauffeured limousines, driving their own cars to work. 32 per cent drive mid-sized sedans and 18 per cent trampled traffic in their SUVs. Minivans and luxury sedans tie for third place at 7 per cent while sports cars make up a mere 3 per cent.
One in five c-suiters prefer environmentally-friendly ways to get around like cycling, public transportation or hybrids.
