Not wearing a uniform is the biggest perk of an office job for some people. They feel best when they have clothes that express their identity and feel comfortable in. the truth is that not all uniforms are bad. Many businesses, and even offices, are going the business-casual uniform route and looking for comfortable corporate apparel to reflect their brand identity. You spend a lot of time perfecting your brand’s image, from your logo to your packaging, and your employees’ appearance needs to match also. Continue reading to identify three reasons why branded corporate apparel is good for business.
One of the biggest motivators for not having a uniform is staff comfort – many people assume that a uniform will be uncomfortable somehow. This doesn’t have to be true. Indeed, there are uncomfortable uniforms out there, but corporate apparel comes in many different comfortable styles. In most cases, companies choose a selection of different apparel styles so employees can choose the piece they find most comfortable and fitting their identity while still maintaining the approved look of the brand. In many cases, employees like not having to spend a lot on clothes and never risking breaking dress code accidentally (especially when you choose comfy options).
Having your logo on your employees’ corporate apparel is a great way to put your brand out there in front of more eyes. The guests who come into your store will see the logo and have positive connotations about the staff’s professionalism. But so will the people who see it when staff stop for gas or to pick up dinner on the way home. Branded corporate apparel is like a walking billboard.
One of the biggest positive impacts of a uniform is a sense of being on a team. When everyone is wearing the same outfit, there is automatically improvements in morale and the sense of community since they feel like part of a unit. There also is an improvement in customer perception in most cases. When all of the employees are immediately identifiable, it makes customers feel more at ease and sets everyone up for a better interaction (which also can improve employee morale).
