Need Corporate Uniforms? 10 Tips for Getting It Right



Here’s what you need to know to get the right corporate uniform for your workers.

  1. You’ll need to know why you want to introduce a corporate uniform. Are you looking for more customers, and to look professional, or are you just keeping up with your competitors?

  2. A staff uniform might be more appropriate for some jobs and workers than others, but you’ll still want your staff to look smart, even if they’re mechanics or painters and decorators.

  3. How many outfits will you need? Depending on how many workers you have, and how often they’ll need to wear corporate uniforms will determine how much you’ll need. Perhaps your staff will need to wear it all day every day or perhaps just for exhibitions or on special occasions.

  4. How soon you need your staff uniform can help you to determine where to get it from. It should be remembered that a company providing a quick turnaround might not be as busy, or in demand, as a company that will take a little longer.

  5. You’ll need to decide what items of clothing your workers will need. Embroidered polo shirts, embroidered shirts, sweatshirts, fleeces, trousers, jackets and more are available, and can have your company logo added to them.

  6. Remember that you might need high visibility clothing and other accessories, such as gloves, hats and bags.

  7. Your corporate uniform will need to be durable so that it’s long lasting. You won’t want to have to replace it every few weeks, as this won’t be cost effective.

  8. Corporate uniforms will need to be comfortable, and not restrictive, especially for manual workers. Trying to build a wall, or fix a car in clothing that doesn’t fit well will mean your workers won’t be very productive.

  9. Depending on your company, workers and industry, you might have certain requirements or standards that you need to meet when it comes to corporate clothing. Bank staff might not be appropriately dressed in polo shirts, and those repairing the road won’t want to wear a shirt and tie.

  10. Value for money is essential, so you’ll want to make sure that you get the best deals, and get exactly what you need the first time. If you’re not sure what you want or need, then why not ask the workwear company if they can help you?

Now you know what to look for, you’ll be able to make sure that you and your staff have the right corporate uniform for their job, and give the right impression of your company.
