Equipment for Security Guards

April 21, 2018

Did you know that Pretoria (also known as Tshwane) was initially called Pretoria Philadelphia – which means “Pretoria of brotherly love”?

Security guards are a prominent feature in many parts of our country. Rising crime rates have led to businesses, residential complexes and home owners 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 flash light. You may also consider a belt that can hold a flash light, pen, whistle or other items that they will have to have on hand.

Benefits of Wearing a Proper Uniform

April 20, 2018

Pinetown has had a somewhat subdued reputation as a light industrial town. But of late things are changing and this suburb of Durban is gaining quite a reputation in the property market. 

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.

Trend Forecasting for Tomorrow’s Corporate Clothing

April 14, 2018

Situated east of Pretoria Lynnwood is an upmarket suburb most likely named after an American suburb of the same name. It is a well-developed area, lying to the east of the city centre of Pretoria.

‘Trend forecasting’ often gets used in the financial sense. However, everyone from interior designers to fashion experts and product innovators can predict the future of their industries based on changes within the market. Here are a few trends in the corporate clothing market that you should take note of:

  • Styles Are Changing

In the past, corporate clothing was generally limited to golf shirts, t-shirts and caps. Companies are increasingly looking for ways to differentiate themselves from the competition, which means that corporate branded clothing manufacturers are vastly expanding their ranges. Some of the latest trending items include polo shirts, beanies, scarves and branded sportswear. If you are considering investing in corporate clothing for your employees, be sure to take your time browsing through clothing catalogues before you make your decision. 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 clothes 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. This will get employees involved in the creative process and give them a sense of ownership.

Linbro Park is a mixture of huge plots where people keep horses, old farms and the odd warehouse, depending on where in the neighbourhood you find yourself. Homes here are large, many properties have horses in paddocks, and old rickety farmhouse gates greet your entrance into some driveways.

Ever Considered Why Some People Wear Uniforms?

April 10, 2018

Only close to 5 kilometres from Pretoria centre, Hatfield has its own burgeoning business area, and the Hatfield Plaza with its shops and entertainment, as well as a number of restaurants. It is sometimes referred to as the “Embassy Suburb” due to a high concentration of embassies housed in the area.

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.

Reasons Why Some People Wear Uniforms

The vibrant Cavendish Square and The Link in Claremont offer an amazing range of shops – most of them the bigger chain stores – but there are some classy boutique-style shops as well. Claremont is some 20 minutes’ drive from the centre of Cape Town.

Why do Successful People Choose to Wear the Same Thing Every Day?

April 3, 2018

Boksburg is a diverse mining town which offers contemporary living with an outdoor touch. Popular joints include the Boksburg Lake and the Wild Waters water park where many families go to enjoy watersports.

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.
