The Importance of a Uniform at the Workplace

Welcome to the world of possibilities! How may I serve you? 

 

With these basic ideas in mind the concept of having a common dress came into the picture. If the dress of the members of an organization or a company remains the same then there is a sense of commonality which develops among them. Uniforms also depict solidarity and this has been this way throughout, right from the days of the Roman Empire to the modern day manufacturing houses.

These days wearing a uniform  is common with the paramilitary organizations like the police, the fireman, and the armed forces. These help them stand out of the crowd so that they can be easily recognizable and also distinguish them for the service they do. These uniforms not only make them feel proud but also have an imposing effect on others and with the presence of a person in a uniform as well as changing the mood of the people around them.

 

So let’s go into very important reasons:

  • Industry Demands: There are certain industries which are focused on the customer, like the department store, restaurants or hospitals. These industries demand that the workforce look more united and eager to serve the customer, so the role of the uniform becomes very important. When the workforce is wearing a pleasant uniform the customers approach them more confidently. 
  • Uniform As Perks: In some large organizations, it is considered as an honor and a kind of perk to receive a uniform. This results in a considerable conversation of time and energy of the personnel, as one doesn’t have to choose again and again the clothes to be worn at the workplace. Also a lot of money is saved since rarely will that personnel will be buying new clothes.
  • A Sense of Belonging: If the workforce wears the same clothes to the workplace then they share a feeling of commonness and belonging, which otherwise gets very difficult.
  • A Feeling of Equality: A uniform brings everyone to the same platform, no matter how rich or poor he or she is and thus inculcating a feeling of equality among those wearing the uniform.
  • Mutual Growth: People wearing a uniform are more caring for their fellows and colleagues, they care not only for their growth but the growth of their peers as well. Uniforms are very important and fosters traits which are very necessary for a person as an individual and an organization as a whole to thrive and prosper.

The hope is to one day work with and teach children who have special needs such as myself! Biggest belief and philosophy of life is that, no matter what anyone says you can't accomplish in life, I am living proof that anything is possible! Having ADHD, high functioning Autism, and medical conditions such as Scoliosis, helps me to understand special needs children on a level that very few people can!
