There are several key factors that should be considered when choosing a uniform for your workforce. Along with getting the correct corporate image to fit your brand and compliment your logo. The garments you choose must be suitable for your industry, be practical, comfortable and durable, allowing your employees to perform their task safely and efficiently.

Often the customer’s first impression of your business, a uniform can reflect or indicate the quality of the work you will produce, build confidence and trust in your business and employees, help customers to recognise your staff and promote your brand.

Internally, a uniform gives your staff a sense of being part of a team, creates a more inclusive feel and help boost productivity.

Colour and style are key factors when designing or selecting a uniform for your employees. It is important that you take your staff into consideration during this process, choosing garments that will suit different figures and sizes so that all your employees feel comfortable and confident in their uniform and suitable and practical for the job role. When it comes to choosing the colour of the garments you will need to keep in mind your logo and brand, coordinate and compliment for a smart and professional look.

The role and environment will influence the garment requirements and choice. A trades-person working on a construction site will need durable and protective clothing, very different to a receptionist at a boutique hotel, nurses will require an authoritative  yet approachable look to their uniform and those working in an office environment may require a more formal corporate look, shirt tie and tailored suiting.
