There are several factors to consider when choosing clothing for your employees. You must consider the comfort and suitability for your staff along with giving out the right corporate image for your company.
A uniform needs to give out a professional image wherever it is worn and portray the quality of work you will produce as well as giving your clients full confidence in your staff and company.
When selecting your uniform, colour and style are key factors. You need to think about styles that will not date and are suitable for a range of different shapes and sizes so all staff feel happy and confident in their uniform. Colour can be very important depending on the type of work to be carried out, for example, selecting a light colour which could potentially be easily soiled would not be the best option.
Choose from a wide variety of fabrics. If the majority of your employees work in an office, corporate clothing made of cotton may be the appropriate choice because it looks professional and is comfortable to wear. On the other hand, if most of your staff are skilled workers, then you might choose a cotton/polyester blend because it sheds water and is not easily wrinkled.
When considering colour it is important to think about your logo. Ensure your uniform colours co-ordinate with your logo to give an overall consistency to your brand. As a lot of thought goes into creating a corporate brand so it is important to ensure that your staff are not able to make changes to the uniform as this will create a mismatch of styles and colours and will ultimately result in the loss of that all important professional image.
