43% of Britons believe that people are more trustworthy when wearing a uniform

A recent survey revealed that people wearing uniform are also more approachable than those who don't

A survey of 1,000 working UK adults, looked at the modern day view of wearing uniforms in the workplace. Discussing uniforms in general, over half of the respondents still believe that uniforms are important in the workplace and 51 per cent of people said that wearing a uniform makes them feel professional.

Respondents also stated that they had more pride in their work when wearing a uniform and in fact it made their job easier.  31 per cent of people also said that wearing a uniform makes them feel more productive at work.

Marketing Director at Banana Moon, Alex Grace, said: “First impressions are important for businesses as they determine whether the brand can be trusted and ultimately whether or not they will make a sale.

“When entering a business the first thing prospective customers will pick up on is what the staff are wearing, therefore it is important to find a uniform that reflects your business and the key messages you would like to put across.

“Casual wear works well for some industries, but not for all. Companies need to invest time into researching their industry and customer base to properly evaluate what will work best for them.”
