News reaches us that Nigel Sharrock’s exit from Grey has had
serious ramifications for the agency.
Following top-level talks, a memo has been circulated explaining that
staff are allowed to wear casual clothes on a Friday - as long as they
don’t choose shorts.
But where does this leave the normally already casually dressed lads and
lasses in the creative department?
Keen to take part and foster team spirit, we understand the entire
department arrived at work last Friday ... in suits.
Oh, and here’s another rule that obviously took several meetings to
decide: Grey staff have been banned from taking newspapers into the
toilets (something we’ve been told Sharrocks did a lot).
Funnily enough, reading papers in the toilet is also verboten over at
BBH, whose Hegsey has tried several schemes to stop staff reading while
they powder their noses.
