With the release of Our Planet on Netflix last week, it is safe to say that we are all thinking about the impact we, as humans, have made on our wonderful planet. With our actions becoming increasingly detrimental to the environment, we all need to take as many steps as we can to reduce the impact we are making, and hopefully reverse some of the damage that has already be done.
What we do?
Here at Imagin we work entirely online, receiving our orders through our website or email, completing these on our website, with invoices being emailed to our customers, thus avoiding the need for printing on paper. When it is necessary for us to print onto paper, we always use the scrap paper to avoid unnecessary waste. All our paper waste is recycled.
We also have a ‘no one in – no light on’ policy. If a room is not in use (where no natural light is available) the lights are never left on. Furthermore, all unused equipment/sockets are always switched off and at the end of each working day, our computers are also switched off.
Where possible, we always try to reuse items like empty milk cartons, for multiple purposes, like disposing safely of our excess doming resin.
What can you do to help make a change?
If you go to https://www.ourplanet.com/en/ you will find loads of ideas of ways your can help to save our planet.
Congratulations to Aimee, one of our graphic designers, on buying your first home with your partner Ryan! We wish you all the best!
5 reasons why your staff should wear a name badge
Are you debating whether or not your staff should wear a name badge? The short answer: Yes, they should! And here’s why…
1. Identify employees and volunteers to each other
Wearing a name badge is a great way to break the ice. By having staff members wear a name badge or id card, they can easily be identified by other staff. This is especially effective in large companies. In addition to this, it is great when taking on new starts – as learning everyone’s name can be daunting. Having a name badge will help new employees settle in and feel included as part of the team.
2. Make employees accountable for their customer service
Having your staff wear a name badge is a great way to let customers know exactly who they are dealing with. In relation to customer service, a name badge will make your employees more accountable. Putting a name to the face, customers can easily identify who they were dealing with when providing feedback. This is a great way to boost staff morale, as they will receive credit where credit is due.
3. Staff identifying with the company they work for
If your staff are not required to wear a uniform, a name badge is a great way for your staff to feel that they are a valued member of the team. As mentioned above, a name badge can also help new employees settle into their new role.
4. Make employees/volunteers more approachable
Especially in job roles facing the public, a name badge will make your staff and volunteers more approachable. When customers know your employees name, they feel more at ease and are more likely to give good feedback. In many industries, making the process feel more personal is a great touch!
5. Building company recognition
Every employee is a representative of your company, so you want them to make a good impression. We all know that word of mouth is one of the best ways to advertise your company. The same way your staff wear a uniform to be identified by the public, a name badge is a great way for staff to show where they work.
