Some companies, and businesses, require their workers to dress in a very similar manner. They want people to conform to a particular uniform code to ensure that everyone knows they are an employee. When you are an employee, you must look the part and not act better than anyone else. You are simply there to do a job and fulfill your role within the company. If you do not have this, then there are some who will take advantage.
- In businesses such as restaurants or a health clinic, customers need to easily identify who is available to help them.
- Workers don’t have to worry about what is or isn’t appropriate attire; they just put on their uniform and go to work.
- Uniforms create a sense of belonging and being part of a group.
“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.”
