Friday 22nd March saw the launch of the industry’s first research study into ‘how wearing a uniform to work contributes to happiness in a role’.

Representatives from some of the UK’s leading businesses came together to help shape the direction of the research study. With attendees representing circa 2.3% of the UK’s GDP, a large percentage of uniform wearers across the UK were well represented.

Hosted by Ken Denny, Client Relationship Manager from Murray Uniforms, delegates heard captivating talks from industry experts, including Procter & Gamble and Topps Tiles. Delegates were then invited to take part in an exploratory session discussing industry uniform challenges and how the research study could help identify gaps in current information within the marketplace.

Some quotes from the event…

“It’s obvious people are very interested [in the study] and it’s paramount we all feel better in ourselves if we are comfortable in what we are wearing when we go to work”

Head of Fashion, Coventry University

“[The launch event] gave some really useful insights into the worlds that other businesses live in and the uniform challenges they have. There’s a lot of people waiting for this research to come out! ”

Head of Central Operations, Topps Tiles

“It’s great to be part of this study that’s kicking off, looks like a great piece of research.  I think what this study is going to do is really help us understand how uniforms can make people feel better at work but how that also translates into improved productivity and improved satisfaction.”

Research Fellow, Procter & Gamble
