Boost Your Teams Morale With A Corporate Uniform

Is your team lacking morale? It might be time to introduce a corporate uniform. 

Reaching your maximum potential as an organisation is really only possible when you have a cohesive team on board. You need a team that identifies with the same values as the company, as well as working towards shared goals.

If you are finding that your employees are working as individuals, rather than a team it is highly likely that your employees do not feel as though there is a team environment. Therefore your employees lack morale. However, there is an extremely simple way to boost team morale at an internal level, introduce a corporate uniform. While employees are likely to resist the idea of a corporate uniform they are not just beneficial to your company, but also to the employees themselves.

Often employees find it extremely hard to bond and develop positive relationships with their superiors and their colleagues. So introducing a uniform effectively blurs the lines between management and employees. As everyone is wearing the same apparel, employees will start to feel as equals. There will now be a sense of an all for one, one for all working environment making it far easier to form positive relationships. As a result the level of communication between an employee and their superior will often increase.

Secondly, corporate apparel becomes a major part of your corporate identity and culture. Uniforms often serve as a source of pride, people feel proud to represent the team they are a part of. So wearing the company name, logo or tagline on their shirts enables employees to strongly identify with the values held by the company. Ultimately by boosting your teams morale and creating a positive working environment productivity will inrease, employees will now strive to attain their goals.

Hot Branding Tips for Winter – Jackets

Helping you keep warm

With news headlines reading “No respite from gloomy weather” or “First snow, now black ice hits south” we know that winter is well on its way, or in some places around the country it has very much already arrived! In Turangi (just south of Taupo) the other day they woke up to a chilli -5C, which was the coldest temperature in the country. Even Auckland and Christchurch only had one degree difference!

EmbroidMe: Hot branding tips for winter - Jackets

You may get condensation on the windows at home and have the windscreen frozen-over on your car, or if not, we’ve all experienced the rush of bitterly cold air when you go and open a door to outside! Driving to work can also start out cold as you wait [patiently?] for the heating to work. On days like this motivation to leave the house can quickly fade.

When it comes to winter fashion many people would tell you that the trick to keeping warm is by wearing layers, but that can cause an issue for your companies branding. Business uniforms provide excellent benefits for your business (read our previous post), but in winter the company logos and brands frequently get hidden behind non-branded jackets. Branded jackets give credibility to staff in the same way a branded shirt does, and including a branded jacket in your uniform dress-code means staff and team members will take the brand with them wherever they go.

About.com says that branding is your identity in the marketplace and that it’s important to realise that how you package your brand is an integral part of your business. Just by looking out into the world today, it’s easy to see why brands are more important than at any time in the past 100 years.

A good brand confirms credibility, and reassures customers that the plumber, builder, or any type of tradesman or delivery person that turns up to their house is actually from the company they called. But it’s not limited to that. Sports teams and coaches are easily seen, professionals are identifiable in meetings, event staff and road-workers are visible, salesmen gain credibility, and ultimately everyone is kept warm. Don’t only provide your staff or team with a uniform to promote your brand, invest in jackets to ensure that your brand isn’t hidden.

“Therefore it makes sense to understand that branding is not about getting your target market to choose you over the competition, but it is about getting your prospects to see you as the only one that provides a solution to their problem.”
