It's an Industrial Uniform Revolution
The global workwear and uniform market is projected to grow by 5% between 2020 to 2027. What’s leading this uniform revolution? Growing trends in fashionable, yet functional workwear and rising demand for the protection of worker health and safety are the leading factors for companies deciding to implement uniform programs, but not the only reasons.
Just as manufacturing has become more precise and higher-tech, the clothing your employees wear has too. Gone are the days of stiff blue work pants and shirts. Sure those are still available, but the apparel and options from today’s garment suppliers include more fashionable clothing with fabrics that flex and move, are made of moisture-wicking materials (ideal for those incredibly hot SoCal days), along with extended sizes and women’s uniform garments. Your employees can all be outfitted in clothing that fits them and represents your company.
The added form, function, and comfort of today’s uniform garments are an evolution of uniform rental programs. Plus, uniforms provide companies with a ton of benefits you may never have realized.
Here are some of the top reasons why companies switch to uniform programs
Workplace Safety is a Top Priority
First and foremost, companies are increasingly focusing on providing their employees with the highest level of safety in the workplace, and uniforms are a big contributor to that. For industries like manufacturing, flame-resistant garments can help prevent workplace injuries from operating heavy machinery or accidental electrical surges and arc flashes. For the transportation and material handling industries, high visibility uniforms can protect workers from being struck by heavy equipment or oncoming traffic.
With workplace sanitation being a top priority in 2020, a uniform rental program from Kleen Kraft offers laundering services so that worker uniforms are cleaned to the highest standards, far beyond what any home laundry can achieve. This is especially important for food processing businesses that must prevent contamination. Our uniform service will provide you with sanitized garments that can help to maintain the efficiency of your operations. Still, it’s becoming more relevant for many businesses – offering employee uniforms ensures additional levels of cleanliness for all your workforce, from the front office to the shop floor and everywhere in between.
Creating a Professional Image with Customization
Not only do uniforms provide functional purposes, but they also serve to help companies present a unified and professional brand image that can help retain customers. Uniform programs give you the option to use your logos on any garment you order so your workers are always representing your company.
Outside the workplace, uniforms with your logo or other garments you may order like outerwear or accessories serve as free advertising for your products and services to the public.
Building Worker Morale
Uniforms have a profound impact on employee morale and help to build a sense of team spirit and belonging to a company. By providing your employees with a uniform program, you are instilling a sense of pride and responsibility towards your company at all levels. Uniform programs can subtly deepen employee loyalty and create a positive work environment which can help to increase productivity too!
