How to get students, staff and employees to wear ID badges

If you’ve recently implemented a policy requiring your students, staff and employees to wear their ID badges every day, you’ve probably noticed that enforcing that policy is easier said than done! Many schools and businesses find that students and staff members tend to forget their ID badges at home or lose them or “their dog ate it”. Whatever the reason, continuous ID badge reprints can get costly…and it’s a hassle for your administrator taking hours to reprint those lost badges. 

ID badge accessories are a convenient and fun solution to help everyone protect their badges and keep them handy when they need to be swiped or presented often. With a wide range of accessory options, there’s got to be something for each member of your organization that will help them keep their ID badge accessible. At IDville we offer options like cool lanyardsbadge holdersclip attachments and badge reels

Using different colors of ID badge accessories is also a great opportunity to differentiate between grade levels, employee departments and building visitors. This will aid in quick visual recognition of who should be where inside your building. Many badge accessories are even customizable so that you can add your brand or team member names. There are so many options; there’s sure to be something for everyone!

ID Badges...A Great Marketing Tool!

ID badges in the workplace are often primarily seen as informational, a security tool to improve employee and visitor safety. Many companies often overlook the effective company branding that a great ID badge offers.
 
Company branding is a quick and effective way of letting both prospective and current customers know what your company is all about, adding personal value to your company. Branding is essential to showing what your company does and the benefits customers will receive that set you apart from the competition.
 
To effectively utilize your team ID badges as a marketing opportunity, design attractive, full-color badges – prominently display your company name, logo and brand colors so they are easily noticed by customers. Having an appealing, memorable ID badge is a great way to promote your brand to both current and potential customers.
 
Employees displaying badges with the company name and logo will ensure it is continuously seen by customers. The more customers notice your ID badges, the more effective your branding efforts will be, allowing customers to more easily recall your company in the future, and ideally, they’ll continue to do business with you.
 
You can also give your team options to choose how to wear their badge so they are comfortable and the badges don’t distract them from their daily tasks. IDville has several badge-wear options ranging from clip attachments to customizable lanyards to retractable badge reels along with many other possibilities to choose from. Many of IDville’s accessories are customizable so you can add your logo or company name, again increasing customer awareness of your brand.
 
To add a personal touch to your ID badges and maximize the branding opportunity they provide, add your own special message – a mission statement, company motto or inspirational message that conveys brand beliefs, showing customers a little extra tidbit about your company. Creating and presenting a brand identity that consumers can identify with will ultimately build their trust and loyalty to your company.
 
IDville offers both single- and dual-sided ID card printer systems for everything you decide to include on your company badges. Whether the main goal for an ID badge policy is to easily identify team members or keep everyone safe, why not create an eye-catching branding piece at the same time?

Time to Celebrate Customer Service Week!

It’s the first full week of October and you know what that means – Customer Service Week is upon us!  This is the perfect time to highlight the importance of great customer service and recognize team members who live and breathe it every day. This week is a great opportunity to really show your team how much you appreciate their dedication in helping make your company a success!

Making a big deal out of Customer Service Week will remind your team why they love working with you and renew their drive to take customer service to the next level. Planning some unanticipated events for your team will show them that you notice and value their hard work, boosting morale, motivation and teamwork.

“At IDville, we place a large emphasis on the importance of an amazing customer experience on a daily basis, so we make sure to shine the spotlight on our customer service teams all week long,” said Dan Rogers, IDville General Manager, “We make sure to take time out to play some team building games, soak your manager in a dunk tank, raise money for a great cause, and several other small activities and perks throughout the week including casual days every day!” Carving even a small amount of time out for activities like these will have unparalleled benefits for your team.

There are countless ways for you to celebrate and say “thank you” to your team; from playing games, to offering casual days, to buying the team lunch. No matter what surprises you plan, your employees will love them and your company will reap the benefits of a rejuvenated and enthusiastic customer service team.

To show your team your gratitude, small gifts go a long way – everyone loves an unexpected gift from their employer. IDville offers great gifting opportunities for you to show your team you appreciate them! From custom printed lanyards to fun fashion ID accessories, we’ve got something for everyone on your team to enjoy.

While Customer Service Week is a great opportunity to go all out in showing your team you appreciate them, keep the momentum from Customer Service Week and continue to show each team member they are a valuable asset to the company throughout the year. And remember – happy team members means happy and loyal customers, which ultimately means more sales.

Trade shows: my secret to understanding customer needs!

After attending over 40 tradeshows within the past year I have seen my fair share of the country.  What I have really noticed is that almost everyone wears an ID badge!  From the contractors used at the exhibit halls, to my taxi cab drivers,  to the baggage handlers loading luggage onto the plane, everyone is wearing an ID badge!   

The one ID accessory that I see being used the most by women is our new Rhinestone lanyard. These new, sparkly lanyards have made it fun and stylish for woman to wear their IDs.  We recently gave these lanyards away at the SHRM conference in Chicago and our booth was almost overrun by human resource professionals wanting these shiny gems!

The most popular ID badge accessory I see being used by men are our carabiner badge reels.  These badge reels are sturdy and dependable and allow you to wear your ID badge on your belt loop and then clip onto your keys so that you don’t forget the ID the next day.  Make sure to check our carabiner badge reel supply as we also have reels that have a measuring tape and flashlight built into them!

One of the most rewarding things about being on the road promoting IDville is running into current customers who have one of our ID Maker ID systems. It’s great to hear them rave about their ID Maker system being easy to use while allowing them to make a professional badge that no other system can create.  Customers are always quick to flip open their purse or wallet to show me their ID and how they designed it with their logo and artwork.  Many of the customers that I worked with as they chose an ID printer use the custom card design that I originally made for them per their request!

Interested in an ID system and want to see a custom ID card design with your logo?  Fill out your info here and one of our sales reps will contact you ASAP.

I will be at the following shows over the next couple of weeks.  Stop in and say hello!

International Association of Fire Chiefs – Chicago 8/16 & 8/17

Midwest Security & Police Show – Tinley Park 8/20 & 8/21

Custom lanyards let you be choosy!

by Kayla 30. October 2012 09:05

Does your company currently use lanyards to display ID badges? If not, the variety available should make you reconsider!

Custom lanyards are a great way to tell your organization’s story – share themes, branding, and company logo consistently! They’re also a great way to ensure employees don’t damage, misplace, or lose their ID cards, which can be costly to replace. 

Custom lanyards aren’t just for employee ID badges, though! Specialized lanyards are a great addition to a company outing or event. Many associations and trade groups use them for conferences and shows. Include them in employee gifts or give them out to build buzz around special promotions throughout the year. A custom lanyard is a versatile part of a new employee welcome package.

Personalized lanyards need not be expensive, either! Check out our line of quality custom lanyards for as low as .35 each! What an inexpensive way to encourage company branding and promotion among employees!
Be choosy about your lanyard!

Lanyards Keep ID Cards Visible for Students, Staff, and Employees!

Having a hard time getting your students, staff, or employees to properly display their ID badges? Lanyards keep ID cards visible at all times! It’s not too late to get your school or organization equipped with the right photo ID accessories. 
 
Here are some recommendations for school and company lanyards options:
 
Stock Lanyards for Students/Employees. Identification is crucial to the safety and security of your students and staff members, but making sure they display their ID card can be a challenge. Stock lanyards are an affordable option you can choose to give each person a way to display their ID card. You can always add a breakaway function for added safety. 
 
Theme Lanyards for Visitors. Whether you work in a school, on a college campus, or in an office building, there’s bound to be visitors coming in and out of your facility. Protect your students and staff by requiring all visitors to wear a themed lanyard when they are in the building. This will help everyone easily identify visitors. 
 
Fashion Lanyards for Office Staff. Who doesn’t enjoy being choosey? Allow your office staff to choose their favorite style and colors from our assorted beaded lanyards to fashionably display their ID card. 
 
USB Lanyards for Teachers/IT.  Welcome new teachers or IT personnel with a USB lanyard they can use to both display their ID card and carry around important data. The USB lanyard has 1 GB of storage and easily detaches from the lanyard.
