A businessperson (also businessman or businesswoman) is someone who works at a job that focuses on making money. Generally, it is someone who works in the management (at any level) of a company.

Businessperson is used more commonly than in the past, in place of the words businessman or businesswoman to avoid sexism and stereotypes. Sometimes the words businessman or businesswoman are used to point out a man or woman.

Dress code[change | edit source]

Businessmen generally wear standard business clothes: a suit with collar, shirt, and necktie. However, this changes depending on the company, the local culture, and the country. In more casual places, neckties can be left out.

Businesswomen's clothes have gone through many changes. Dresses and suits are common today.
