    Go to work Naked

    The Brits cannot be to bad. They came up with this idea.

    Staff strip naked to improve morale - Telegraph

    David Taylor, a business psychologist, told workers at design and marketing onebestway, in Newcastle upon Tyne, that a Naked Friday idea would boost their team spirit.

    He was called in to help the firm after six staff members were forced into taking redundancies at the start of the credit crunch.


    Mr Taylor told them that, by stripping off their clothes, staff could also strip away inhibitions and talk to each other more openly and honestly.

    He said: "Inviting an organisation to go naked is the most extreme technique I've used. It may seem weird but it works. It's the ultimate expression of trust in yourself and each other."

    Despite some initial reluctance, nearly all the staff took off all their clothes except for one man, who wore a posing pouch, and one of two female workers, who kept on black underwear.

    Sam Jackson, 23, the house manager, was the only woman to go fully naked. She said: "It was brilliant. Now that we've seen each other naked, there are no barriers.

    "We weren't put under pressure. If we wanted to come in clothed or in our underwear, we could. But I love my body and wasn't ashamed.

    "We're all beautiful, whether we've got big bodies or small ones."

    Miss Jackson, who suffers from cerebral palsy, said: "It took a week of David being in the office for us to build up courage. The first few steps were very nerve-racking but, once I got to my desk and got used to it, I felt totally comfortable.

    "It was emotional but we found we were much more able to talk to each other honestly and have been since. The company has improved massively."

    The experiment in April was filmed for a one-off TV show, Naked Office, to be screened on July 9 on cable channel Virgin 1.

    I can think of one or two folks at work who would probably enjoy strutting around naked (well, one in particular), but in my case I would me more concerned about mental scarring to others than personal embarrassment. No one who isn't compelled to by legal contract should have to see that much back hair.

    The thing is most of the people in this world should wear clothes. It is for reason none other than that we don't scare other people. Face it, we don't want to see most of the people in this world naked. Not everyone looks like Megan Fox or some hot guy that ladies drool over.

    That is very true, as well as the distraction and lack of concentration of your work should some of the women could give Kristin Kreuk or Erica Durance a run for the money.

    This worst would be for me to go to work naked (though I'm in my pajamas at home right now typing this up).

    If I was naked in a work place, it would be very scary noticing "fellow" workers tyring to find Captain Ahab's phone number.
