Let's face it, creating a dress policy that suits a company's industry, culture, values and the ever-changing times can be a trial. And choosing a uniform that is loved and worn well by employees is one of the hardest decisions for companies to make. Gone are the days when employees will happily wear traditional business attire or unflattering (and uncomfortable) uniforms. Neither should they have to, because today's employees want to look and feel good while being a proud brand ambassador for the company. It's a win-win situation!
More and more savvy companies are treating their dress guidelines and corporate workwear requirements with street smarts and pride by hiring a corporate stylist that understands corporate style, culture and branding.
Amanda shares her 3 no-brainer corporate style enhancer tips that can help you elevate your brand:
1. Perception is reality
Before you engage a corporate stylist get clear about what you want from your corporate workwear solution.
Are you looking for:
- A fresh, modern and standout look?
- A durable, easy care, cost effective solution?
- A congruent brand, with styling options and standout features?
- A well designed dress policy?
- Or do you want a combination of all the above?
It's important for your company to strike the right balance. First impressions matter. Especially when it comes to corporate workwear. Today's consumers won't hesitate to move on if your brand message and image are in disconnect. Make it easy for staff to happily represent your company with pride. Customers certainly respond to a happier, more confident employee.
2. Create a congruent brand personality
Most companies spend big dollars to create a brand, but fail to translate their brand message into their corporate style. Your corporate style concept plays a crucial part in creating a cohesive, congruent brand. CEOs and managers who understand this leverage corporate stylists to help them translate their brand message and values with the help of well-designed styles, colours and essential details.
3. Remember the PSC rule
Corporate workwear should be PRACTICAL, STYLISH and COMFORTABLE for all employees to wear. It should have options that are flattering for all body shapes and contain key pieces that are easy to combine, giving staff a range of style options while keeping them looking clean, smart and on brand.
The biggest mistake companies make when choosing their corporate wear is hiring uniform supply companies that don't understand the big picture when it comes to branding
