Even in times of recession there’s no getting away from training costs, and roles such as enforcement wardens cost local authorities up to £4000 to train staff. Our message at this year’s Parkex exhibition was that providing the best warden uniform helps to retain staff. Our new garments such as the magnum striders, patrol anoraks and patrol caps are focused on keeping staff safe, warm and dry. This leads to increased staff morale meaning those staff are more likely to stay in their role and provide a return on their training investment.
Providing the right enforcement uniforms and equipment can also reduce sickness and absence. Happy staff, rather than wet, miserable staff, will also be more productive in their work. And when they know their managers are looking after them by researching the right uniform, looking at all the options and involving them in the decision-making process, this further feeds into the feel-good factor.
That’s very much been our message this Parkex, and it’s been tremendously well received, with over sixty local authorities stopping by our stand to discuss their staff’s uniform issues, and how Keltic can help solve them. If you’d like to arrange for your local authority staff to trial our garments, free of charge, to see what a difference they can make to your staff morale, just get in touch.
