43% of Brits believe that people are more trustworthy wearing a uniform

When wearing a uniform, 43 per cent of Brits view people as being more trustworthy, according to new research.

A survey of 1,000 working UK adults, looked at the modern day perception of wearing uniforms in the workplace.

The survey revealed that 43 per cent of Brits think that people wearing uniforms are more trustworthy and approachable than those without.

Looking at uniforms in general, over half of the respondents still believe that uniforms are important in the workplace and 51 per cent of people said that wearing a uniform makes them feel professional.

Some 40 per cent of respondents went on to say that wearing a uniform gives them pride in their work and makes their job easier, and 31 per cent of people stated that wearing a uniform makes them feel more productive at work.

Alex Grace, Marketing Director at Banana Moon, said: “First impressions are important for businesses as they determine whether the brand can be trusted and ultimately whether or not they will make a sale.

“When entering a business the first thing prospective customers will pick up on is what the staff are wearing, therefore it is important to find a uniform that reflects your business and the key messages you would like to put across.

“Casual wear works well for some industries, but not for all. Companies need to invest time into researching their industry and customer base to properly evaluate what will work best for them.”
