Week 3: My Uniform Doesn’t Allow Me to Express Myself (uniforms with choice)

4 August 2020 | 0 Comments | News

In the 21st century, the importance of the individual and freedom of expression has been drummed into our heads from a very young age. Our differences are something to be celebrated, not hidden nor denied. To that end, a uniform may appear to be, on the surface, the very antithesis of individuality.

A company seeking to ensure employee satisfaction, while upholding a certain brand look and identity, can embrace an employee’s freedom of expression by implementing a flexible uniform policy. Offering options to the employee can go a long way in terms of creating a work environment that embraces the uniform and has the ability to still incorporate choice in that framework.

One style really does not suit all . We are all so different in shape and size , much more so than when JSD was first founded 40 years ago . Some of us are curvier and some are straighter with average waist sizes considerably bigger than in the 80’s.  A well designed uniform, using stretch fabrics and a select choice of styles to suit those differences can be a huge advantage for the wearer, giving employees some flexibility in terms of how they accessorise and wear a corporate uniform can also go a long way in creating a positive and productive work environment.
