How do employees dress in your office? Is there a range of professional attire to casual wear? Do certain employees get extra recognition from peers who wear more expensive looking clothes compared to those who do not? To avoid the unnecessary distraction and hidden competition between employees for the “Who Wore It Best” award, consider implementing a workplace uniform to motivate employees.
3 Benefits of Uniforms on Employee Motivation
When employees wear the same clothing as one another, there is a sense of togetherness embodied in the workplace. Whether employees are working on a sales floor or in cubicles next to each other, wearing the same outfit proves that they are on the same team. Uniforms create solidarity amongst co-workers more than having employees wear what they want.
If employees are wearing jeans and T-shirts on the weekends to relax and take their mind off work, what is their mindset if they are wearing the same outfit in the workplace? There is a strong need to differentiate “weekend self” and “workplace self” in the office. Creating a uniform can aid in the mindset transition and put employees into work mode. This transition will increase productivity and employee motivation in the workplace.
Along with creating a specific mindset for workplace productivity, uniforms add a sense of professionalism to a business. For example, when employees are wearing a shirt with the company logo on it, there is a sense of pride that comes with the outfit. The pride that goes along with wearing a company logo will translate into the improved work that employees will provide.
When creating a uniform, consider the style and type of clothing that will best benefit the employee. Is your business looking for a new uniform or need an update to an existing one?
