Love them or hate them – there’s a time and a place for Staff Name Badges and I guess it boils down to the question – Do you need them?”

For the purposes of this article I’m going to assume that you’ve made the decision – you DO need them – and so I’m simply going to suggest my Top Ten Tips for Staff Names Badges.

Staff Name Badges

Staff Name Badges

1: For ‘public facing’ job roles – the preference these days is to use first names only. It gives a more ‘friendly’ look, but also has security benefits.

2: We recommend using a magnetic fastening badge. They’re really strong and secure and have the added benefit of not piercing/marking your staff’s garments.

3: Purchase badges that can easily be edited/amended. Staff come and go, and once you’ve printed their names in a permanent way, you’ll have a badge that’s of no use to the next member of staff.

4: Use the badge platform to promote your services – we have clients who change their badges each week – and put a different ‘sales message’ onto each one. Imagine the following message on a staff badge in a ¬†garden centre – 10% off in our cafe all week.

5: Staff Name Badges don’t need to say ‘Here to help’ – simply wearing a name badge demonstrates you are indeed, here to help!

6: Choose a badge with a colour that compliments the style/colour of clothing your staff will be wearing.

7: Your branding/logo needs to be seen – but most importantly, make sure the staff names are clearly visible – they are after all ‘staff names badges’!

8: Have some fun with the space under the staff names – put personal messages there. We’ve worked with a cinema chain where each member of staff put ‘my all time favourite film is – (insert name here) – or consider staff name badges being used in a cake shop, – my favourite is Lemon Drizzle. Go on, have some fun, show the human side of your business.

9: Why buy hundreds at a time when you can buy DIY Name Badges with a minimum order quantity of just one?

10: ¬†After countless surveys it’s an established FACT that the best place to position your staff names badge in on the left hand side of your chest.
