    Why do some employers dislike beard in the office? Does it affect one's productivity?

    Many employers dislike them because many, many customers dislike them. Studies show that some people love beards, others hate them. Some women like to see them on men other than their own. Some men want to wear them but know that the clean shaven look is generally thought more trustworthy. Some men know this and do not care, preferring self-indulgence to being thought more trustworthy by strangers.
    To the second part of your question, beards can indeed, in some cases, prohibit productivity. Should we stereotype men with beards? No, but people do it.

      Any statistics showing how beards  inhibit productivity?

      No, but I was thinking of situations such as blue collar jobs where people would have to work slower in order to be careful/safe.
