From conducting research, many psychologists agree that it takes approximately three seconds to form a first impression. Confidence and trustworthiness make up around 80-90% of those first impressions.
In business, you want to appear both trustworthy and confident to your customers and employees. You want to create a professional impression to your employees on a daily basis. You also want your customers to be able to trust that your company will work legitimately and have the ability to meet their needs.
One way to create the right first impression is by wearing a uniform. Uniforms are crucial in forming a respectable first impression and making a positive start to a long-lasting customer relationship. They are one of the first things your customer will notice when interacting with your employees.
Advantages to wearing uniform

A branded uniform will also strengthen your brand strategy and where you sit within your marketplace. This will set your corporation apart from your competitors in your market space.
