If your company is still not using neck lanyards for your employees, then, it is time now to have a change in the company policy. Providing ID lanyards to the employees may help develop the workplace in some ways. If you are skeptical about the idea, here are the four concrete purposes, why the company employ
ees should wear lanyards:
1. Safety - Improving security is the most important and the most obvious benefit of having that lanyard around your employee neck with their ID badges. By requiring everybody to prominently show the ID badges on the lanyard, you will ensure that if there are unauthorized individual that enters the building, they will be identified quickly by your security personnel or someone from the staff.
2. Employee Interaction - This advantage is really true for average to bigger office environments. Because every employee will have the names visible, there is really no excuse for the employees not talk with each other by the first name basis. In this instance, it will increase their level of modified communication, and it will not only create a friendly office, but will also increase the efficiency of each employee. As we are all aware, people are more organized workers when they have known that they are in a relaxing environment, and through the lanyards on their neck, you will make much warmer surroundings for the employees to function in.
3. Customer Interaction – Aside from the employee interaction with each other, giving the employees that lanyard to wear will create an interaction with the customers and they will be more productive. If the customer is talking with one of the employees and abruptly forgets the name, they can solve this problem easily by simply taking a glance at the hanging badge around their neck. While this may appear like a trivial advantage, it will really keep the high self-esteem of the employees while they are performing their duties. If the customer told the employee that they forgotten their name, this situation will be a bit offending to the employee and there will be a feeling of uneasiness in between them. So, therefore, you may help in avoiding this awkward moment when your employees have their ID badges with them at all times, and also give them attractive lanyards around their neck that they will be proud to wear anytime and anywhere.
4. Company Unity – As an added benefit to the advantages mentioned above, the lanyards will also aid in promoting the pride of the company and showing the unity among the employees with their employer. By adding a policy which will involve the wearing of lanyards by every employee will help inspire the thought that they everyone is a part of the team and the growing company and that everyone must work together not only help the company improve, but also to help them progress as a person and as an achiever, because wherever the company will go, they are going to be on it. As the saying goes, the employees that works together, stays together!
