There are many ways that instituting a work uniform can benefit you and your employees, but it can also benefit your company as a whole. Many employers are nervous about instituting a uniform policy because they think that their employees will be unhappy about it. While some might be, for many it is a welcome change from having to buy and maintain their own professional wardrobe, especially if the company supplies the uniforms, or even better opts into a uniform rental program that even handles cleaning. If you're looking for some strong company benefits to help you seal your decision, look no further.
Having a team uniform promotes a feeling of belonging and unity. This isn't just about good vibes, either, it really has been shown to translate into improved productivity. It helps your employees to feel that this is more than just a job and their contribution matters.
Branded uniforms are like walking advertisements. They often attract new and different eyes than would otherwise see your branded marketing. If your employees are able to talk up and sell your business or product when they're approached in public, branded uniforms can be a great way to drive new business. If you don't believe this, think about how many free t-shirts you've gotten at trade shows or events – they give them away for free because everyone who wears them becomes a walking ad.
Having a work uniform that your employees wear out into the world makes it easy for your existing customers to recognize them (not just new customers, as described above). This way, customers are more at ease when they are approached by the employee. Customers are often also more likely to trust and believe an employee in a uniform than one who is not.
If you choose a professional looking work uniform, you know that every employee will present a professional image and good first impression of your business. If you're letting employees choose their own outfits, you never quite know how they will look, and how professional they will look, from day-to-day. With uniforms that you design, you do know.
the proper uniform can also increase employee safety and security. For instance, if there is a fire risk involved in your business, you uniforms should be fame resistant. If your employees may get caught out in the weather, having rain-resistant or cold-weather gear as part of your uniform could help keep them safe and more comfortable.
