Incorporating a uniform program is an easy way to build a club’s brand, enhance professionalism, and offer a great hiring perk to employees.
A uniform program is an effective solution for clubs to supply branded apparel and merchandise to their employees. Whether right or wrong, people are judged by their appearance and how they dress, so by incorporating an employee uniform program a club can quickly establish a professional business image for its members and potential future members. For the purpose of brand awareness, as well as plenty of other reasons, such as recognition and security and safety, it is worth taking a look at how a uniform program can benefit any club.
When members see your employees wearing uniforms, a club’s brand instantly communicates a number of messages with characteristics such as trust, having a competitive advantage, equality, professionalism, pride, and teamwork. Employees with neatly tailored uniforms help to strengthen a club’s trustworthiness for its members, are perceived as better trained and more professional, and are easily recognized by members throughout the club. When uniforms are mandatory, a more equal work environment is created, employees work better as a team, and employees have higher morale and more pride in their work which results in better customer service and improved productivity.
Employees are an extension of a club, so when they wear uniforms displaying a club’s logo and colors, they further extend a club’s brand by giving it a physical presence all while helping to differentiate a club from other clubs in the market. Not only are branded uniforms worn on the job, but they’re also worn to and from work. Wherever employees go in their uniforms they become a walking advertisement that promotes the club.
A uniform program can keep employees safe by supplying them with specific apparel that is geared toward the type of job they do. Providing employees with uniforms is also a great hiring perk, as employees appreciate the fact that they don’t have to worry about what to wear to work and that a portion of their paycheck isn’t going towards buying other work attire.
A uniform program can deliver a number of benefits and no matter how a club defines its brand style, there are endless options available to help create a uniform program that is unique to each club.
