Getting Name Tags and Badges for New Staff

posted in: Name badges, Name Tags | 0

We’ve written before about how useful badges and name tags are in many industries – managers know this intuitively because they’ve been in charge of getting people on-site and getting them ready to work. It’s no small job, and outfitting new employees is part of the task.

Being able to outfit someone with an identifying name tag or badge is a key part of that logistical process of on-boarding in retail, in healthcare, and in many other types of businesses. Often, it’s a flurry of activity where managers are looking to make sure everyone has their uniform, name tag and other gear to start helping out immediately.

That’s why we’ve built a system that offers 48-hour service, with tracking information to your door. We know that time is money when it comes to getting people through the on-boarding process – doing the paperwork, filling out the tax and payroll forms, and getting all necessary gear on-site to make sure they’re ready for day one. Delays are productivity killers, and in some cases, jobs have been lost over this kind of thing. So having verifiable vendor service is a safeguard that is worth something.

Durable Badges and Tags

We have a variety of framed and dome-covered tags that will last a long time under pressure. Your employees are going to be often working in some tough conditions – in hot kitchens, in busy high-traffic areas and elsewhere, where it’s important to have uniforms and accessories that don’t fall apart.

We have all of this in stock, and eligible for that quick turnaround, again, to help managers make sure they have everything covered for an important day or shift.

Fasteners and Connecting Pieces

Another major issue occurs when managers keep hearing people talking about their name tags or plates falling off. This can actually be a significant problem, because customers or others are expecting to be able to identify staff, and trying to rig up connecting pieces takes away from the employee’s focus on core work. 

We have velcro designs and pin-style holders. We have laminate enclosures and more to make sure that these badges and name tags stay where they are placed, to identify everyone appropriately and help keep operations humming along smoothly.

Take a look at our entire catalog of personalized options, and ask about any potential deals, as well as our guaranteed quick service delivery, because our products are most valuable to you when they arrive on time! We aim to help our clients to staff up and ramp up for scaling growth the right way.

The Importance of Name Badges at Events

The Importance of Name Badges at Events

When networking plays a key role in your daily agenda, name badges are a vital part of your attire. Whether it’s for entrance to a session or to see the company you represent, the first place someone looks is at your name badge. How many times have you met someone at an event, only to forget their name minutes later? Name badges provide a quick on-the-spot, at-a-glance name recall, making it easy to remember someone’s name and make acquaintances easily.

Name Badge Functions at Events

When attending events, there’s not always time for formal introductions. Name badges and a good quality lanyard are essential for fast introduction, making acquaintances easily, and name recalling. In today’s society, name badges also have an augmented function which the info they carried could be stored or exchanged by means of mobile apps. In this case, only a QR code or a barcode is enough to exchange necessary information. This recent technology also allows conference organizers or exhibitors to analyze participant behavior and their trafficking easily.

Information to Include on a Name Badge

At Quick Badge & Sign Inc., we offer a variety of badge styles for a unique look. However, there is some common information that should always be included on your name badge. While your name badge should not be your business card, it should be a representation of the company you work for. This means your company logo or name in text form is a must. Obviously, your name should be larger and more prominent than anything else on the badge. The choice of font should be a simple and easy to read, and when possible include your title on your badge. Note that:

  • A name badge is an introduction. People glance at a name badge, not read it like a book. If you want people to remember your name and company, make them stand out.
  • Name badges don’t work if they are facing the wrong way. Invest in a good, no-twist lanyard to keep your identification facing out so people can see it.
  • At Quick Badge & Sign Inc., we provide a variety of styles. If you prefer a badge fastener, we offer magnetic fasteners. If your team or event is large, we offer color coded name badge holders and lanyards to make it easy in identifying people.
  • We also have badge carrying cases for organizing badges that are readily and available.

Who Needs Name Tags and Badges?

posted in: Name Tags | 0

Who needs nametags and badges? Well, everybody. But there are different ways that these products can really serve your business in a positive way. Here are some of the reasons why it’s a good idea to implement a badge setup across all of your business locations and facilities. Badges and IDs are a vital part of setting your business up to succeed!

Your People

Assigning name tags and badges to employees is a great way to keep some order in busy day-to-day activities and operations, and to recognize everyone’s career progress.

For many people, a good name tag or badge is a visible symbol of their position in a company. Sometimes, for example, these are useful in promoting “champion” or other workplace incentive campaigns.

At the same time, tags and badges help to introduce these people to others outside of the business. Name tags and badges with a security component also give people access to key areas in order to do their jobs.

From physical site security to easy introductions, name tags and badges are certainly worth the investment.

Your Suppliers

Many different types of businesses have multiple vendors or suppliers who need to come on site, either to deliver materials or deliver services related to either the building or the business process. But this can introduce its own kind of chaos, if site operations are not managed properly.

Having specific badge or tag programs available for these outsiders helps to maintain security for trade secrets and sensitive information. Again, it also helps people to understand who everyone is on the site and why they are there. It makes operations (and the roles of people in them) more transparent … and that’s a good thing!

Your Visitors

Visitor tag and badge programs are another excellent example of good cybersecurity best practices. Physical site security is a key component of overall business security and it’s important to make sure you have safe and effective security processes in place for your business facilities. Unless it’s an open store where anyone is free to come and go, identity management programs are a must. That’s another reason why having identification badges is so important to businesses.

At Quick Badge and Sign, Inc. in Fairview, OR we have a diversity of ways to help you to streamline business and make sure best practices are in place. We know that your business is not like any other, and has its own particular needs. Ask us about our products for identity access and management programs, and how these can help to protect your business assets. We are excited to hear from you about how to improve your company!
