If you’re applying for a certain position or attending a company event, then wearing their logo lanyards may just be one of the keys to promotion.
That is, if you wear these voluntarily (i.e., they’re not part of the uniform). Why and how? Here are a few things to consider.
- They Show Your Style as an Individual
What you wear can say a lot about you. This is why it is important to learn how to dress to impress.
Many people take this fact lightly, but it’s their loss. You need to exude the atmosphere of a serious professional who has a stand on issues the company fights for.
This can be done by wearing the proper set of clothes and their accessories.
- This Lanyard Shows You and Your Company’s Identity
The logo lanyards contain your company’s name and logo at the very least. At times, they may even contain a slogan or its one of its awareness campaigns (ex., support cancer research).
As such, wearing these can send a message that you’re comfortable with being identified with your company. You accept and are proud of being connected to its stands on various issues.
Identifying with your company shows that you trust in your company to take care of you while you do your job in ensuring its success.
Your bosses may not cite this as grounds for promotion, but it’s a small thing like this that could spell the difference between you and a co-worker with the same credentials.
- They Show That You’re Serious about Your Job
If you always wear your lanyard, then you give off vibes that say you take your position and your company’s name seriously.
Lanyards usually carry IDs and keys. Never mind that your neck may sometimes get itchy with constant rubbing from the lanyard.
If you constantly take them off and leave them in random places, then you’re risking the security of your company.
However, wearing them at all times says you’re willing to sacrifice a few personal inconveniences in exchange for the assurance that company safety is protected.
- Wearing Catchy Lanyards Can Get You Noticed
When in a company with the same dozens of faces milling about, you have to find a way to stand out from the crowd. Having a collection of logo lanyards can help you achieve that.
There are different types of lanyards that could be worn for different occasions. Awareness lanyards (containing the proper campaign) could be worn during company social works.
They may draw attention from others, and you can impress them with your knowledge on that issue as well as what your company does about it.
If you’re attending a formal event that requires IDs, a braided or flat and colorful lanyard won’t complement your clothes and the setting. A beaded or synthetic leather lanyard would be better.
These give off the impression that you take even the smallest details seriously. Being detail oriented can be a very important trait, especially if your job relies heavily on the creation and analysis of figures and charts.
If it’s just another day at work, you can mix and match various combinations of clothes and lanyards. Again, this shows attention to detail.
It also highlights your creative potential, since you have an eye for colors and designs. Your co-workers and bosses will notice this and probably label it as quirkiness.
However, they also receive a subliminal message that says, “Hey, boss! I enjoy being in this company and am doing my best at work. So please don’t let me go.”
All in all, wearing the logo lanyards shows pleasing traits in an employee: one who identifies with the company, is serious and detail oriented, and cares for the company’s safety.
