A professional looking long sleeved button down or heavy denim employee shirt with an undershirt or long sleeved tee underneath may be perfect for winter months. But you might want to consider an alternate summer uniform for your employees!
Casual summer printed shirts can not only make your employees grateful to you and increase the quality of the employee/employer relationship, they also make a lot of sense in other ways. Custom printed t-shirts create a spirit of unity among your employees, and are the perfect way to build energy and get everyone psyched up for your summer promotions.
It’s not always easy to get a diverse set of employees to feel like they are all part of a team. Wearing similar, comfortable shirts lets them mentally and emotionally connect as a group, and makes you the good guy; instead of everyone griping about how hot it is in their company button-downs, they’ll be singing your praises for allowing them an alternative!
Of course, t-shirts aren’t appropriate for all businesses, but there are many cases in which they can be of benefit. You could easily develop a casual summer uniform for your employees that includes an official screen printed tee with your logo splashed across the front. This works for casual retail, salons, food establishments, and many service industries – especially those in which employees will be working outside in the heat, such as landscaping, dog-walking, sign spinning and so on.
For a slightly more professional vibe, try a printed or embroidered polo shirt in a lightweight material. You can have your logo on breast pocket and the employee’s name on the sleeve, making customers feel comfortable when your workers show up to install cable, fix a plumbing leak, or clean your home.
Custom printed casual shirts can also be used for employee gatherings outside of work, such as a retreat, team building event, community participation, and so on. The solidarity and uniformity of your team can be reflected in their matching shirts, and will help them subconsciously form stronger bonds with their fellow employees.
Covering the cost of screen printed company shirts or embroidered polo shirts for your employees is well worth the investment; by investing in your employees and their comfort, you gain major brownie points as an employer, and you’ll find that investment repaid many times over in employee respect, morale, and good attitudes!
