Name Badges - Why use them?
Apart from some obvious answers; namely that personalised branded staff name badges enable your staff to stand out from the crowd and confirm their position and role within your organisation, surely there must be more psychological reasons why staff name badges play such an important role in business?
Name Badges – Getting it right first time!
Social experiments have long confirmed that uniforms and embellishments (including name badges) have an influence in human contact situations and it is well to consider the old maxim, “You only get one chance to make a first impression!” - initial contact could influence in a manner which can be very difficult to reverse; so it`s important to get it right first time.
Trust or Trimmings?
Name badges not only help exude a sense of authority and knowledge but they can also help to attract:
when worn by a competent person or team. When any customer or member of the public approaches a member of your staff, the first few seconds are vital in terms of fostering an atmosphere of mutual beneficial accomplishment.
Company values, ideals, principles and success...
Successful organisations are normally guided by highly driven, professionally minded, ambitious individuals or groups who strive to develop these characteristics over a wider circle of employees. This dissemination of company values, ideals and principles are an integral part of success, and forging a spirit of teamwork and belonging plays a big part in the bigger picture.
What do staff name badges mean to your staff?
Name badges serve as a constant reminder to the wearer, of their affiliation and obligations during their undertaking of their duties and can help promote self-worth, pride and promote understanding of brand values. A personalised branded staff name badge can in no way make up for a disinterested, unmotivated or underperforming employee but it can provide the `icing on the cake` given that all the other pieces of the jigsaw have been put in place.
Can it be just a coincidence that nearly all the major brands and companies who deal with their customers on a face to face basis use name badges as part of their customer care policy?
Name badges - Are there different types?
Yep, they come in different guises depending on how or where they are to be used including Staff, Conferences, Security, Exhibition, Promotional etc. It`s a case of `horses for courses` and they can be manufactured in a variety of ways depending on the technology employed by the company supplying them. They can be supplied using:
- Printed card with polypropylene pockets & lanyards
- Dye sublimation
- Digitally printed with domed resin coating
