Baseball caps are a uniform staple in a lot of industries. Automotive, restaurant, warehousing, etc.,all use baseball caps as a part of their company uniform. The reason for this is that they are easy and convenient. They are also one of the most cost-effective means of displaying your company logo. Given the fact that most baseball caps can be screen printed or embroidered, the sky is the limit when it comes to color combinations and the like. However, there are a few other creative uses for baseball caps that you may not have thought of regarding your working environment. Consider the following ways you can incorporate the cap and make your employees stand out.
Day Off Award
Consider getting a baseball cap with the words“Day Off Award”printed on the front, with your company logo underneath. Then, develop an incentive system that rewards employees with a day off as they achieve certain benchmarks. The day before you are scheduled to pass out the award, wear the baseball cap for the entire business day. At the end of the day, simply walk up and award the cap to your employee. They can leave the baseball cap sitting on their desk during their absence to remind the other employees of why they are gone. This is a great way to motivate staff and have a little fun at the same time.
Fundraiser for Charities
Consider purchasing caps of all one color and allowing your employees to sell them for a fixed price. Most people enjoy supporting a worthy cause and who wouldn’t want another baseball cap. Obviously, the employee that sells the most caps wins and you can give out prizes accordingly. This is a great way to raise money for your corporate charity or local community effort.
Consider having several caps printed up with your logo displayed on the front and having your employees wear them at your next corporate event. I have even seen a few instances where companies will go so far as to print their employee’s last name on the back of the cap. This is a great way to make the hat a little more personal and also get your brand to stand out at the event.
Make Meetings Efficient
This is a clever way to keep people in your board room quiet when they need to be, and allow other people to talk when they have something to say. Simply pass out one corporate baseball cap at the board meeting and let the rules be as follows. The only person who was allowed to speak is the person that has possession of the cap. You can set a time limit of three minutes so they don’t drone on forever and ever, then the cap is passed to the next person. More than likely, you will not have to use this if you have a pretty good grip on your organization. However, if you are in middle management at a large corporation and meetings seem to get stuck, or certain people always get their say, this trick is a great way to speed things up and let other voices be heard.
So there you have it. There are a few other creative ways to use a baseball cap. Who knew they were good for more than just keeping the sun out of your eyes right? When used creatively, they can actually make your company a bit more efficient, and in the long run more profitable. Now that is something you can definitely hang your hat on.
