75.8% employment in uk
Highest rate of employment in almost 50 years
With 32M people in the UK currently in employment, the highest rate since 1971, there are more uniform wearers in the UK workforce than ever before.
So how do staff really feel about wearing uniform?
We wanted to know, so we undertook a quick poll amongst our customers (236 participants) across retail and facilities management and found that when asked “how positive do you feel about your uniform and the way it makes you feel” the average score was a very positive 9 out of 10.
Of uniform wearers who gave a lower score, there were consistent reasons including; dislike of uniform colour, items not being suitable for use, eg trousers too heavy for wear in the Summer months and not having a maternity wear choice within the uniform range.
