But long gone are the days of polyester shirts and unisex pants. Today’s corporate uniforms come in a variety of colors, styles, fabrics, and with gender-specific construction.
The best thing about the new corporate uniforms is that everyone doesn’t have to wear the same thing. Jane can wear a sweater. Bob can wear a polo shirt. Amy can wear a button down. What makes a corporate uniform a corporate uniform is the decoration.
I’m not talking about glitter and sequins. I’m talking about embroidery. Screen printing. Vinyl lettering. The type of decoration you choose should be appropriate to the style of clothing you choose.
Screen printing, which allows for a lot of detail or a vintage-looking print, is a great way for companies who’s demographic is young and edgy to decorate apparel. Embroidery on the left chest of a poplin button down is spot-on for corporate uniforms for financial companies. And vinyl lettering on a quality t-shirt is a natural decoration choice for gym employee uniforms.
Even though corporate uniforms are beneficial and convenient, some employees may be reluctant to give up their individuality and embrace a uniform. To achieve employee acceptance and buy-in, structure an apparel program that gives them a choice.
One way to determine what types of clothing people will like in a corporate uniform program is to conduct a survey. Include apparel options for both men and women that are appropriate to the type of business you run and the different tasks employees are responsible for. When you’re choosing your apparel selections, be sure to consider how your customers and employees will respond. Also, consider the pieces you will offer, including tops, bottoms, vests, and jackets, as well as accessories like scarves, ties, socks, and hats. Lastly, think about options you will need for seasonal climate changes, including long-sleeved garments, short-sleeved garment, outwear, and more.
