Reasons Successful People Are Choosing to Wear the Same Thing Every Day

June 30, 2018

The fast-growing business and a retail district of Tygervalley, a suburb of Bellville, brings modern – leading décor stores, medical centres, multinationals, trendy restaurants and big corporates – to the heart of the northern suburbs of Cape Town.

Have you ever noticed that really successful people tend to look the same every day? Whether it’s Steve Jobs and his signature black polo neck jersey and jeans, or a CEO with a crisp white collared shirt and tailored black skirt, one often sees successful people (who can undoubtedly afford to spend a lot of money on trends and fashion) in the same outfit every day. What’s the reasoning behind a minimalist wardrobe?

  • Minimise the risk of decision fatigue

Decision fatigue, where your critical thinking skills wear down if you make a lot of decisions throughout the day, is very real. If you are ‘the decider’ in a business, then it’s a good idea to consider things that you can streamline to keep your decision-making abilities focused on the things that really matter. Things like clothes, snacks or the route you take to work, for example, are just examples of things that you must decide on during the course of a normal day, but that can be eliminated from the burden of your day-to-day decision-making.

  • Always feeling comfortable in your clothes

While it’s fun to play around with colours, styles, and trends, it’s possible that the latest fashion not only doesn’t compliment your body type that well but also that you feel a bit uncomfortable in the clothing. When you stick to a few items that you know suit your body and make you feel well put together, then you know that you can go about your daily tasks without worrying about clothes that don’t fit or look right.

What Kind of Equipment do Security Guards Need?

June 21, 2018

Did you know that Port Elizabeth is one of South Africa’s largest seaports and that it was originally founded as a settlement for British emigrants?

Security guards are a prominent feature in many parts of our country. Rising crime rates have led to businesses, residential complexes and homeowners investing in hiring security guards to protect themselves, their staff and their families.

If you have appointed security guards, then you will need to make sure that they have the right equipment for the job. Here’s a brief overview of what they will need:

  • Uniforms

Branded uniforms will help the staff and residents identify security guards. Not only will this help them spot any unauthorised people on the property, but it will also show them who they can turn to if they need help. The uniforms should be comfortable and have the word ‘security’ on them, as well as a logo if needed.

  • The right footwear

Security guards are on their feet for many hours of the day. You need to make sure that they are wearing comfortable footwear, which means quality shoes. If security guards are required on construction sites, then you may also have to invest in protective safety boots to protect them from safety hazards and dangers.

  • Tools

The type of work that the security guard does will impact the equipment and tools that you need to invest in. If they are working night shifts, then you will need a flashlight. You may also consider a belt that can hold a flashlight, pen, whistle or other items that they will have to have on hand.

5 Reasons Why Wearing a Proper Uniform Is Important

June 21, 2018

Did you know that Edgewood College near Pinetown is KZN’s largest teacher’s training facility?

Are you considering branded uniforms for your business? This is a great idea for several reasons. Here are five reasons why wearing a proper uniform is important:

  1. Customer Service Expectations in Your Industry

Certain industries, such as the hospitality sector, restaurants, health industry and many other customer service sections of a business demand that the workforce is easy to identify. Give your staff the clothing they need to look more united and so that they are distinguishable to clients.

  1. Company Perk

A uniform can be seen as an honour and a perk for staff. Deciding what to wear every day takes a lot of mental energy. Corporate clothing is expensive, so you can help your employees and offer uniforms as a perk.

  1. Sense of Belonging

It’s easy to feel isolated and disconnected, even if you’re working among many people. A uniform can give staff members a sense of belonging to your business.

  1. Equality

People come from vastly different backgrounds and social standing. When everyone wears the same clothing, it puts everyone on the same platform and level, thereby bringing a sense of equality to all.

  1. Creating the Right Attitude for Achievement

People are more likely to care for people who are part of their group. Uniforms will help colleagues to see each other as peers who are part of a team.

Why Do Some People Wear Uniforms?

June 18, 2018

Did you know that the birth of Afrikaans as the world’s youngest language is celebrated by the iconic Afrikaans Language Monument that stands prominently on the southern slopes of Paarl Mountain?

Uniforms are a set of clothes that are worn by people from a particular organisation or institution. Sometimes uniforms may be required to perform certain jobs and tasks. Uniforms may also be worn to identify people, for example from a specific school or a company.

Uniforms are beneficial and often preferred for several reasons:

  • Consider all the mental energy a wardrobe requires. Each morning, you wake up and wonder what the weather will be like. Then you need to mentally prepare the clothing items that will not only keep you comfortable for the weather, but also for the required situation (if you’re meeting a client, for example, you might want to look more formal than if you are going to play action cricket after work). A uniform eliminates a lot of this type of planning while ensuring that you are always presentable, distinguishable and comfortable.
  • Certain tasks require branded uniforms. Security guards, for example, must have a security company’s name and the word ‘security guard’ on their uniforms. Firefighters require uniforms that are heat and flame resistant.
  • Some companies have uniforms that their employees wear. In the customer service industry or the hospitality sector, this will help clients to distinguish employees from guests.
  • Company uniforms are often regarded as a perk. It’s also a great way to unify people. With the cost of corporate attire becoming increasingly expensive, many people appreciate the option to wear uniforms to work.

June 12, 2018

Did you know that Krugersdorp, which was named in honour of President Paul Kruger, has now been renamed Mogale City?

You will be amazed by the sheer number of options available on the market today!

  • Individualised Options

While some employees will regard corporate clothing as a perk, others may not like the idea of wearing something that can be seen as a ‘uniform’. In this case, it’s great to be able to give employees options so that they can use their branded uniforms as an opportunity to express their individuality. Instead of only having a few options in one colour, why not have a few different patterns and styles designed in various shades of your corporate colours.
