How uniforms add value

What value do uniforms bring beyond what you'd get by just requiring staff to dress neatly, wearing clean aprons? A recent survey conducted by Weintraub Associates, an independent management consulting firm, found that:

97% of the public believes that uniforms make employees easier to recognize.

70% of customers feel that uniforms make employees look neater and more professional.

60% of prospects feel that uniforms make your workers look better trained and proud of their company.

“Employees in uniform are the face of your business,” says Brian Garry, director of segment marketing for Cintas Corp., a major provider of uniform programs and other services to business.

“Fresh, crisp uniforms reinforce your brand identity and improve employee morale by creating a sense of teamwork and pride among your staff.”
