BENEFITS OF EMPLOYEE UNIFORMS

BENEFITS OF EMPLOYEE UNIFORMS

Here at Smart Trade Shop, we believe wearing a uniform at work offers ample benefits for both staff and employers.

Here are just 10 reasons why workplace uniforms make good sense...

PROTECTS WORKERS Uniforms may be necessary to protect workers from having direct contact with substances, which may be dangerous or could cause contamination. A highly visible uniform can ensure workers are safely seen, especially at night or during poor light conditions.

PROMOTES PROFESSIONALISM There is no doubt that a workplace uniform creates a sense of professionalism to customers and clients. Image is vital in many work scenarios, and often the first impression we make of people is how they are dressed. A smart uniform ensures a positive first impression and a professional approach to your work.

REINFORCE BRANDING Promoting your brand takes many forms, and wearing a uniform is a highly effective way to reinforce your brand image. A uniform can display your logo or company colours, and since it gets repeatedly seen, it can help to cement your brand image in the minds of your customers.

ADVERTISE FOR FREE A well-designed workplace uniform is a great way to advertise your business for free when staff are out and about, effectively turning workers into brand ambassadors.

DIFFERENTIATE FROM OTHERS A workplace uniform helps to differentiate your staff from others. If you work in an environment with other businesses, including possible competitors, a uniform ensures your staff are recognisable to clients and customers.

ENCOURAGE TEAMWORK MENTALITY When staff are wearing the same uniform and are regarded as equal, it can help to foster a teamwork mentality. This can encourage employees to bond with each other and work together for the good of the company.

SIMPLIFYING YOUR DRESS CODE When everyone is obliged to wear the same thing, it is much easier for employers to enforce dress code rules. Where staff are given more leeway with what they can wear to work, this can often be misinterpreted or boundaries may be crossed, which may impact on the image of your workforce.

COST SAVING FOR STAFF The beauty of wearing a uniform to work for employees is that it can save them money. They won't need to keep their wardrobe updated with clothes for work purposes, which can be costly, especially if formal attire such as suits are the norm.

SECURITY BENEFITS Workplace uniforms don't just come with practical benefits; they are also useful for identifying staff, which is helpful for security purposes. By being able to recognise staff by their specific uniform, you can quickly identify anyone who should not be in a particular area or a site.

A RESPONSIBLE ATTITUDE When staff can be identified by their uniforms, they're likely to take a more conscious and responsible approach to their work and their actions, especially when they are out and about in public.

If you want to reap the benefits of workplace uniforms, Smart Trade Shop can kit your staff out from head to toe, whether it's work trousers, work wear, work gloves, work fleece, safety workwear or high viz clothing.
