Not every company will benefit from workwear, but many will do. If your company falls into any of the categories below, then we’d recommend branded workwear to help improve everything from customer recognition through to staff morale and beyond.
At-Home or Delivery Services
This is fairly logical. If one of your company representatives is visiting customers at home – whether that’s to read their gas meter or deliver a package, then being instantly recognisable is very important. It helps customers make quick identifications and validate your staff members’ visit. This inspires confidence in the customer, making them feel safer and more receptive.
A logo is part of company branding – a really important element that performs many services.
A great logo will instantly tell someone your company name, or what you’re about. It potentially could tell your customers what you do or have to offer. It’s a lot to ask a small design, but if you get it right it could pay fantastic dividends.
Whether it’s Birmingham, Bristol, London or Paris – keeping your establishment in the public eye (and consciousness) is paramount.
With so much competition (think brasseries, bars, eateries, delis, cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, cocktail bars, pubs, hotels, b&bs… the list goes on)…… just how do you make differentiate yourself from the others?
We’ve all seen programmes like the Alex Polizzi’s Hotel Inspector, and Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, where the star goes in and exposes the company’s failings – leaving us aghast that so many of the basics aren’t being taken care of. Things like who does what, how are the accounts being taken care of, why aren’t the staff being managed properly and what about the food hygiene? But after these essentials are taken care of, we at Agentis, reckon it’s all about creating a memorable and professional image with bespoke workwear.Read More
There are multiple surveys showing how wearing a uniform can pull a team together – whatever their purpose. Just think of football, for example. You’re on the terraces, cheering on your team, surrounded by thousands of others who look like you do. You’re part of one big unit, and it feels great!
The same applies the entire world over - whether it’s a school uniform, a sports kit, workwear or leisure wear – being part of one ‘tribe’ is a bonding experience like no other.
There are lots of reasons to consider a uniform at work, and as Birmingham’s main workwear supplier, we’ve seen over and over again, how it benefits everything from your branding, through to employee behaviour.
Here are our top eight reasons you should consider workwear, for your employees
We've been very busy behind the scenes in recent months, developing and refining our Online Manpack Portal and we're pleased to inform our clients old and new, that it's now live!
We allow you, the client, to have full control of ordering multiple uniform items for each employee within your business. Either designate key line managers to order uniforms or allow each employee to log in and order for themselves.
With built in limits to what can be ordered in any specified time period and each uniform pack individually bagged per staff member, we take all the stress and complication out of ordering uniforms for a large team. Taking this a step further, reporting is made readily available to review uniform usage by employee, department or your entire workforce.

Many clients contact us knowing they require a Polo shirt, Shirt, Jacket or Coverall, that needs to be a particular colour with particular features and styling. However, what we find, is that they don’t really know whether embroidery or print would be the better option for them on their chosen item of clothing.
We thought we’d go through this briefly to help guide those out there who could do with a little more information.Read More
Fire retardant clothing - also known as fire resistant clothing (FR) - is commonplace in many workplace environments where safety is paramount. When purchasing FR clothing, there are a couple of things that are important to know.Read More
Hi visibility clothing is everywhere. From eBay, to Amazon and even small independent high street stores, you’ll never struggle to find what you’re looking for, or will you?
In a heavily regulated workplace, conformance is vital. Staff are required to wear steel toe protective boots, hi-vis vests, jackets, hard-hats and more; depending on the particular environment one finds themselves in.
When it comes to hi vis clothing, all garments need to conform to EN471 (updated by ISO 20471). This is the European Standard which all hi visibility clothing needs to conform to before it is considered as offering the wearer the correct and suitable level of visibility and protection required. Within the standard, garments can conform to class 1, 2 or 3. The higher number denotes a higher level of protection required and afforded to the wearer where maximum visibility is required.
So, going back to those hi visibility clothing items that can be found on eBay, Amazon and the like with those crazy low prices. Quite often, the reason these garments are so cheap is because they simple don’t conform to EN471 standards.
So while you might be saving a few pounds, the clothing may not be offering the correct level of protection required to meet the minimum standards. Our advice to all buyers out there.... Make sure you check that your hi visibility clothing meets safety standards before you buy!
One final note... We never sell a garment that doesn’t conform to the relevant standard required.
We appreciate how important it is for businesses today to enhance their corproate image by uniforming their staff with company colours applied to their chosen garment. Whether its an logod Hi Vis Vest or an embroidered Poloshirt, we appreciate that quality and affordability are key. This is why we are very parcitular whe it comes to applying a workwear garment with a logo. We have the ability to apply workwear logos to any garment using different methods of application depending on your requirement and your chosen garment.
We're able to offer embroidered workwear as a most common form of garment decoration. However, we are also able to offer logod workwear with screen print, heat seal transfer and Vinyl application aswell.
