Many people think of uniforms as something worn by members of the military, but many successful businesses use staff uniforms. In fact, the reasons for doing so are very similar to those of the military. Here are some ways utilizing uniforms can benefit your business:

1. Uniforms can help unify your employees. Sharing a similarly branded shirt or other apparel is an exclusive employee privilege, and exclusivity can help create a tighter community. Plus, you’ll face fewer dress code violations and alleviate the expense and pressure of having a “fashionable” wardrobe. This all keeps dress from becoming a status symbol or point of contention among your staff.

2. Uniforms make employees easily identifiable to customers. Customers feel confident and comfortable approaching your staff when they need assistance, allowing them to have a better customer experience. At events outside the office, your uniformed team will be easier to spot.

3. Uniforms create additional advertising opportunities. By having your logo on the employee uniforms, your team becomes a walking billboard for your company. Anywhere they stop on the way to work, the way home, or at lunch time will give your brand additional exposure.

4. Uniforms improve security. Not only do uniforms allow you to control the quality of an employee’s safety gear such as hard hats for construction workers or fireproof gear for firefighters, but it also easily identifies employees in your building. It is easy to recognize if someone is out of place if they are not in the proper uniform.

Polos5. Uniforms fight “Decision Fatigue” for more productive employees. This is a real psychological condition in which a person’s productivity suffers as a result of becoming mentally exhausted from making so many irrelevant decisions in a day. Apple founder Steve Jobs, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg and Albert Einstein are all known for wearing very similar or identical outfits every day just for this reason. Uniforms mean one less decision for your staff to make each day.
