Previously, we’ve explored the various effects uniforms have on perception. Uniforms can create a subtle positive shift in the way your customers see your business through color. They do more than that, however. Uniforms can also affect the attitude and productivity of your employees too!
Improving Your Bottom Line
When employees dress in a uniform they are easily identifiable by customers. Look no further than Target, where employees are easily spotted by their distinct red and khaki uniforms. This creates a positive atmosphere for your company and leads to increased profits and greater job security for your employees.
Employees who wear uniforms develop and foster a sense of teamwork which increases productivity. When all employees have dressed alike, there are no defining marks which denote that one worker is ranked higher than the other. This egalitarian spirit creates a positive atmosphere for your business.
Uniforms also remove distinctions associated with clothing. People are no longer judged by the kinds of clothing they wear, but strictly on their performance on the job. Companies that provide uniforms to their employees also remove the potential financial hurdle that buying work clothing might be for some employees, leading to higher productivity and a better sense of financial wellbeing.
Fosters a Sense of Professionalism
Uniforms can also let customers know that your business is serious about being professional. Consider the effects that military and doctor’s uniforms have on the people who see them. In addition, your employees will be more productive because they will be in a more professional frame of mind. Schools that implement dress codes argue that students pay attention more in class and do better on the examinations when they are in uniform. They also argue that a relaxed dress code leads to a relaxed attitude towards studies. Many companies take the same tack and argue that an overly casual dress code leads to an overly casual workforce that does not take the job seriously.
