Top 5 Reasons to Have Company Uniforms
By Dean Schwartz: Hey again, everyone! We’ve talked about company uniforms in the past, and touted the benefits of getting your employees in on the decision making process. But this week, we decided to take a step back and paint an even bigger picture about the perks of company uniforms. No, company uniforms don’t have to make your team look like a bunch of lemmings. And no, they don’t have to lack a sense of fashion. We’ll get a grip on those items, as well as several others, in this week’s Top 5 Reasons to Have Company Uniforms.
One. Uniforms are a walking billboard. Think of all of the places your employees are seen, besides at a store or office complex. They leave the office to go to lunch. They have outside office appointments, both personal and professional. They’re seen by strangers. At trade shows. Events. Heck, they might even take selfies and post them on Instagram. Trade shows. Events. Getting the picture? Getting seen is a big part of the uniform game, even if it isn’t obvious at first. Naturally, you want a good looking billboard, and that’s a big part of the SOBO Concepts advantage. We do all of that for you.
Two. Because employees who only have one thing to wear are probably going to be on time. Or at least have less excuses if they’re not 😉
Three. All jokes aside, many employees – despite popular thinking – can find it quite enjoyable to wear a uniform. That is, if they’re cool. Like a sports team feels unified, so too can your employees. They’re a team and they feel like it. And it puts everyone on an equal playing field, instead of worrying about form, fit or style issues. Why? Because you’ve taken care of that for them right up front. Imagine the pride that a major sports star must feel when they suit up in the colors of their team, then help us invigorate that same energy into your uniforms. Your employees will be psyched!
Four. Customers. At the end of the day, you’re in business to serve them. And when your team looks professional – and everyone is dressed the part – it’s much easier for them to not only identify help, but feel confident when asking for it. What’s not to like about that?
Five. If your business has an ‘energy’ about it, uniforms are a vehicle that can carry out that energy on a day-to-day basis. If your service or business isn’t supposed to be ‘adventurous,’ then you might expect to have something toned down in terms of a uniform. And that’s cool. But if you’re a progressive, trendy group, shout it out by your choice in wardrobe! Get something nicely designed, with comfortable, form-fitting fabrics. Or don’t – it depends on the preferences of you and your team. Change up the cuts – calf-length pants if you’re feeling casual or subdued colors if you’re feeling serious. And get the logo and color right – on all shirts, all the time. The good news? We help you do all of that. All of it.
So stop stalling on this game-changing project. Having your new, dazzling uniforms arrive at your office is always an exciting time and can create a renaissance of excitement among your team. And the SOBO Concepts team is here to guide you every step of the way to make it happen. Call us today at 1.888.752.0432!
