Are you a manager or a business owner in charge of a team of employees? Do you and your employees offer the best possible first impression for your business?
If you answered yes to the first question and no to the second, then it’s time to take stock.
Your employees are the frontline of your business. How they dress and present themselves can impact on your company’s success.
Staff should feel positive about wearing their uniform. This will only happen when they feel comfortable and confident in their uniform.
If you work for a major organisation then the uniform is usually determined by the corporate head office. The plus here is that there are usually a lot of choices available, so each staff member (with access to good advice) can choose garments that fit and flatter.
If you own a small or medium-sized business and are looking at creating a new uniform or updating an existing one, it’s a process that should definitely be taken seriously.
One company I’m currently working with has formed a committee of staff members to ensure that the updated uniform appeals to all within the company. This is crucial when you have staff of varying ages, shapes and sizes.
Once the uniform has been implemented, I will be conducting a workshop with the 50 staff members to help each of them understand how they can make the best first impression for their company.
That first impression not only depends on a uniform that fits and flatters, it depends on teaming that uniform with impeccable grooming.
Employees are the frontline of your business. How they present themselves everyday can make a difference to how people perceive your business.
It’s important they make the time each morning to work on that polished look. It doesn’t have to be extreme, just consistent.
Remember, if your staff members are comfortable with how they are dressed and how they are groomed, that shows in their confidence.
It’s that confidence that will earn the respect of their peers and your customers. Your staff becomes an asset to the business and your company’s brand will continue to grow.
