Consultants who have studied businesses and corporations all have the same opinion – the better a company understands teamwork, the stronger that company will be. Having a sense of community is important to the growth, prosperity, and functionality of a company.
The core of “community” is “unity”, and what better way to provide that sense of unity than to have symbols of that unity displayed by every employee? This is why company shirts for corporate events can be such an important part of corporate success.
Allowing your employees to wear the corporate logo on their apparel is a great way for them to show company pride. Coats and hats are good, other carryalls like luggage and key fobs are good too, but when it comes to standing out in a crowd, or showing a presence at a function or facility, nothing beats that huge sea of color that having all your employees’ wearing the same shirt can provide. You are not only promoting a sense of unity to your employees, you are also showing that unity and solidarity to your clients and competitors.
With the economic situation that we are faced with today, finding inexpensive ways to promote unity and solidarity are challenging. Customized t-shirts are a very inexpensive way to promote that sense of community. Events planned on a tight budget are still capable of sharing success and making a truly memorable event. And as inexpensive as t-shirts are, any event can become an excuse to add to the employee’s wardrobe with a corporate logo emblazoned on a t-shirt.
An added advantage of having a permanent memento of an even is that they can be useful long after the event has ended. Not only do they add to that sense of corporate unity during the event, but they are reminders of that unity and atmosphere long after the event has taken place. Memories are tied into that simple shirt whether the shirt is discovered in a drawer or hanging in a closet months after the event.
And let’s not forget the benefits of the walk-around advertising those shirts provide. Employee’s wearing these shirts outside of work are a great way to get the corporate name out there in the community. It also allows the employee to show their sense of pride in their job. T-shirts purchased for corporate events today will still be bringing in sales and inquiries next year and the year after.
So, why not add a few extra dollars to an event budget for t-shirts? Or move dollars ear-marked for entertainment or decorations and allow those dollars to become decorations for your employees and the entertainment of the distribution take the place of some other form? It is a great investment in your corporate community as well as an investment in the companies future. A very inexpensive investment that will reap rewards for years.
