Why Every Business Can Benefit From Workwear

Do your staff wear a uniform or professional workwear on a daily basis? Whether your business is in construction, hairdressing and beauty, hospitality, retail or even if you run a graphic design agency, you might be surprised to hear that introducing workwear for your staff could make a huge difference.

In a lot of industries, such as construction, workwear is required by law. This is due to an employers legal duty of care to protect staff from any risks in the workplace which can’t otherwise be avoided. So, once a business has completed their risk assessment, if they find any major risks which employees need to be protected from, then they must provide them with PPE to keep them safe. This could range from hard hats and safety glasses, to steel toe safety boots, or even just a pair of ear plugs. But if your workplace is relatively risk free, such as an office or a retail store, you might wonder why workwear would benefit your business or your staff at all?

Well you might be surprised! Let’s take a look at just a few of the ways every business can benefit from workwear.

  1. Free advertising
    If you provide your staff with a branded t-shirt, sweatshirt or polo shirt featuring your logo and potentially your website or contact details, then any time your staff are out and about in their workwear, your business is being advertised. This is a particularly good way to advertise and raise brand awareness locally.
  2. Instils team spirit
    When running a business, you’ll know how important it is for your staff to remain on the same team. In an ideal world, the idea is that they’re all working hard together, towards the same goals. But sometimes it can be difficult to keep up the momentum of team spirit. By supplying your staff with a uniform or branded workwear, they’ll subconsciously feel as though they’re all part of the same team, which can have a really positive effect.
  3. Improves professionalism
    If you run a small start-up business, introducing workwear can really help you take your business to the next level. Not only will it make your business look more professional, but it can even make your business seem bigger than it is, or even part of a big corporate chain. This can be really beneficial when you’re trying to gain the trust of new potential customers.
  4. Make life easier for your staff
    Having a uniform to put on every single day can make day to day life so much easier. That might seem quite a bit statement, but it’s one less decision your staff will have to make every single morning, while also taking away the pressure of wondering what to wear. We’ve all experienced that worry of whether an outfit is professional enough, trendy enough or whether our colleagues might comment on it. So your staff will appreciate not having to go through this thought process each day.
  5. Protects your staff
    As mentioned above, workwear is commonly worn to protect employees at work. Whether this is to protect them from workplace hazards and risks, or from extreme temperatures or weather. If your staff are exposed to any type of hazards whilst working, then protecting them with adequate workwear is not only essential, but it’s also a legal requirement.

We hope we’ve inspired you to consider kitting your employees out in brand new workwear. It may seem like an investment to make at the outset, but in the long run your staff and your business will both reap the benefits, and you’ll believe us when we say that every business can benefit from workwear.
