Now that the long, cold winter is finally coming to an end, it’s time to think about spring workwear for your staff. Maybe some of your workers aren’t as exposed to the elements as outdoor workers are doesn’t mean their workwear is any less of a priority. company’s image. Here’s our recommendations on what your workforce should be wearing in spring.
From a simple polo shirt with the company logo on the breast pocket to a jacket or coverall suit with a slogan emblazoned across the back, customised workwear has many plus points. If you need any proof of the powerful effect a driver’s uniform can have, consider Royal Mail or UPS. Many people instantly recognise a Royal Mail postman or woman, or a UPS courier because of their iconic uniforms, which are an integral part of their company branding.
Kitting your staff out in workwear with your logo or branding on will help give them status and familiarity. It will help build recognition for your company because every time your staff are out working in public, the uniform will further embed your business in the subconscious of the people who see them. It’s a simple way to advertise your services.
Although drivers may spend the majority of their shifts in their vehicles, they’ll have to leave their vans and trucks at some point to make a delivery, for example. In these cases, they need to be easily spotted by other motorists or by workers at their delivery destination – which is why hi-visibility workwear is essential for their safety.
Depending on the nature of their job, invest in hi-vis jackets, coats or even trousers for additional protection. After all, there’s no such thing as overdoing it when it comes to personal safety.
Spring might not be as cold as winter, but knowing the British weather, the chilly breezes and crisp air are likely to linger at time. It might be a little too ‘warm’ for insulated coats, but softshell jackets can help shield your drivers from the spring chill. Investing in jackets that have durable qualities (enforced elbows is something to think about) such as water repellant finishes, are wind resistant and made from quick-drying fabric, will go a long way in boosting morale and productivity among your workforce.
It’s important that your team look smart so they’re always communicating your company’s values in the best way. Imagine how you’d feel if you were a customer and you saw a driver coming up your garden path wearing sloppy, mismatched clothing. Polo shirts are a great choice of uniformed clothing because they look smart, are easy to look after and can easily be personalised with company logos – which, as we discussed in an earlier point, boosts brand awareness.
