The most basic but the most beneficial item a new employee can get from the company is their employee name tag. It seems like such a small thing, and it is often overlooked, but name tags
can help both employee and employer in a variety of ways:
- For the brand-new employee, seeing other staff members wearing their name tags helps them learn people's names quickly. It can be embarrassing to work with someone all day long on the first day at work, only to show up for the second day without remembering the co-workers name! When people are new, they are trying to absorb all kinds of information. This overload can lead to them dropping the ball on something easy like a co-worker's name.
- If employees are out on a sales floor, their nametags provide the customer with "brand recognition". In other words, if they have a question, they can head for the employee with the name tag and be assured they will get help. When customers can't find an employee, many times they just give up and leave the store.
- Customers relate better to an employee whose name they know. Calling the employee by name creates a subconscious bond with the client.
- If employees wear nametags, they become more accountable for their actions. Let's face it, it's much harder to be rude to a customer if you think they might report you by name. Anonymity can make you feel like you can do anything you want and get away with it!
- Name tags with the company colors and logo will brand themselves into the customer's mind. An employee who is wearing a name tag is like a walking billboard, not only in your store, but also when they go elsewhere for lunch or pop out to do an errand on a break.
- Quirky nametags or fun shapes will make your company seem like a fun place to shop!
- In the same tone, very professional, sharp-looking metal nametags make your company look high-end by association.
- Back to the new employee: name tags help them assimilate more quickly by looking as if they are part of the company.
