In with the new - workplace style tips for 2012

If you are looking for a great way to make a positive, trustworthy impression in the new year, why not send out a cohesive, co-operative message with co-ordinated work ties at your business?

Global economic uncertainty was a major theme of 2011, so it may now be time to cultivate an image of trustworthiness by showing off a united front.

A great way to do this is to adopt common elements of dress - for example, having all workers at a bank sporting the same work tie.

This can present your team at its best - and reassure your customers that there is a whole group of people who share the same ideas and values to support them.

You might even want to order your work ties in the colours of your organisation - this also immediately identifies who employees are and where your clients or customers might be able to find assistance if they need it.

For the female employees at your organisation, you may wish to consider silk scarves as an alternative to custom ties.

These can also be ordered in corporate colours - and like ties, are one-size-fits-all so you do not need to worry about having the right sizes on hand for new members of staff.
