Wouldn’t it make our morning routine that much easier if we didn’t have to think about what we were going to wear for the day? No more having to factor in the days activities at work, no more having to check the weather conditions. Instead, we just wake up and put on the same uniform each day without even projecting an ounce of energy into the thought. Highly successful business icons, Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg have shared their work ritual where they have created their own version of a work uniform, by wearing the same style of suit every day for work. Why? Well the thought process is quite simple in the fact that it helps them to eliminate the thought process each morning altogether. Otherwise known as ‘Decision Fatigue’, it is the understanding that making decisions uses up energy and as humans we only have a certain amount of energy each day that is available for us to chew into. By eliminating the decision of work outfits each morning, it frees up some of that critical energy and decision making space for more important work related decisions that we may be faced with throughout the day.
From a business / owner’s perspective, uniforms are a great way to represent your business and spread brand awareness. By having a team that are all dressed and presented in a clean and level manner it helps to leave a clean and positive association with those who interact with the business. Not only that, but the brand logo or branding in general that is generally printed on work uniforms acts as a great form of advertising.
The issues that may come with a workplace that have not implemented a standard work uniform for their employees to follow is the risk of lacking a sense of professionalism through their attire. If your business hasn’t set a clear standard for employees to follow when it comes to how they dress for work, it runs the risk of people underdressing within their role. The tricky part then follows with how do you have that awkward conversation that they need to upgrade their clothing choices? Avoid the issue altogether by implementing corporate apparel.
Enhances employees self esteem
By ensuring that all employees are wearing the same outfit, it removes the risk of possible judgment and self esteem issues. Employees who may stress on how fellow colleagues perceive them and their outfit choices will be no more, as the option to choose their outfits will be eliminated. Furthermore, it also eases up the stress for those who feel the need to keep their work clothing up to date with the latest trends, which can run the risk of becoming quite the financial burden. Not only that, but corporate apparel is also a great way for your employees to show company pride. Customers are also known to perceive employees who wear uniforms as more committed and dedicated to their work. This factor heightens the chances of returning customers as they already have a positive perception with the product / service after interacting with the employees.
Sense of belonging
Implementing a work uniform helps to create a positive corporate culture within your workplace. When everyone wears the same uniform, it creates a sense of belonging. As mentioned earlier, it also allows for people to feel like they are on the same playing field, no matter where they may sit within the business hierarchy. This then helps teams and positive workmanship to grow and thrive.
