It’s easy to make mistakes, especially when it comes to your work uniforms. You should do everything you can to ensure that they look professional, are easy to clean, and most important of all, comfortable for your workers to wear on long shifts of eight hours or more!
You might have heard an old saying about form following function. In this case, it’s very true. Putting design before function would be a mistake. Although it is important to make smart aesthetic choices (no one wants to wear an ugly or off-putting uniform!) the functionality of the uniform should come first. After all, the uniform a security guard wears will be very different than the one a server in a restaurant would wear, so keep that in mind!
You might think that choosing the cheapest options saves you money. However, it’s smarter to shop around. Don’t go for your very first choice or whichever one offers you rock bottom prices. It’s more than likely that the quality isn’t there. You get what you pay for, and you don’t want to be on the hook for subpar uniforms that don’t meet your needs or expectations!
Uniforms do more than protect your workers and indicate to shoppers, guests, and customers whom to address their questions to when they have one. Uniforms also represent fantastic marketing potential, and you don’t want to leave that potential untapped or unfulfilled. That’s why you should put money towards the logos and other graphic designs on your logos, especially after you have rebranded and are adjusting your existing uniforms to reflect that change.
Be sure to get some input from your employees as well. Even if you are trying to promote a sense of team unity by issuing everyone with polo shirts in different sizes and colors, you should listen to them and what they have to say - after all, they are the ones who need to wear the uniforms no matter what the work day can throw at them!
