And it looks good as well …
When uniforms are the norm, the process of determining whether employee attire meets the company’s dress code is much easier than when people are allowed to choose their own outfits. Individual managers no longer have to use their judgment to determine if employees are wearing clothing that demonstrates an appropriate level of professionalism. This results in consistency in decisions about appropriate workplace attire.
Employees feel a sense of unity. Why do you think sporting teams, the army and schools all have uniforms? By putting on a uniform, employees feel like they are adopting a different persona. There are certain industries that have completely migrated to uniforms such as the hospitality (e.g. hotels, bars and clubs) industry where uniforms are seen as part of their service provision.
Uniforms can be an important part of your workplace security plan. When you and your co-workers are all dressed in an identical or similar manner, it’s easy for employees, customers and visitors to identify who works there and who does not with just a quick glance. This makes it much easier to quickly identify employees and tell who is supposed to be in secure areas and who is not.
