A Valentine’s Day Game Your Students Will Love!

In light of the quickly-arriving Valentine’s Day, we at IDville wanted to share a game that your students are guaranteed to love! 

The rules are as follows: Each student will start off with their nametag or ID badge placed over their heart. Outside of class time, girls are not allowed to talk to boys, and boys are not allowed to talk to girls. The first member of the opposite sex that you accidentally talk to gets to claim your nametag and wear it for the rest of the day. For easy badge clipping, check out our ID Badge Clips! The object of the game is to end up with the most nametags by the end of the day. Your students will love it!

Necessary Supplies: Your students can wear their plastic ID cards, or check out our high-quality Paper Badges for the occasion!  

If your students don’t already have plastic ID cards, consider investing in one of our ID Systems for a safer educational experience. Even if you don’t own an ID Maker® printer, we have affordable supplies for all major ID card printer brands. Just visit our Printer Supplies Locator or contact our friendly staff today at 1.866.438.4553 and we’ll make sure we get you just what you need. 

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,

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!

Keep Your Team Safe

According to recent statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, otherwise known as OSHA, 2 million working Americans become the victims of workplace violence each year. Because of this, workplace security has emerged as a key concern for both businesses and employees in recent years. 

More and more companies across the country, no matter their size, have been shifting more focus and attention to what they can do to reduce the possibility that employees will become victims of workplace violence. One of the most crucial steps businesses can take to ensure their employees are kept safe is to secure the building both inside and out. 

Prevention is a much better alternative to waiting to react until after a violent incident occurs in your building. Restricting door access for building entry and admittance into various areas and rooms is a great way to protect both your team members and your company assets. 

Not only will requiring the use of photo ID badges restrict building access for your employees, it also provides a simple form of visual identification so fellow employees can be easily identified. Requiring all visitors to sign in with a team member as a visitor immediately upon entry into the building is another great way for employees to know who belongs in the building. 

IDville is a great resource for any and all of your company’s identification needs. With solutions for your photo ID badgesvisitor management and simple and stylish ways to display ID badges, you’re sure to find something perfect for you!

These two simplistic preventative measures allow employees to quickly identify who should or shouldn’t be in the building, given that everyone who belongs should be wearing their ID badges or visitor tags. Safeguarding your team from any possible threats of violence is a huge responsibility. And we assure you, the minimal cost of your photo ID system or visitor management tool is well worth the peace of mind.

Benefits of Photo ID Badges

by david 10. December 2013 08:35
david

Have you been considering the implementation of an ID badge policy at your organization? Below are several benefits of requiring your team to wear ID badges while at work that might help tip the scales toward ID badge use.

 

 

1. Safety & Security

2. Visitor Management

3. Time & Attendance

4. Improved Team Morale 

5. Customer Service

6. Student Services Combination 

7. Company Branding

Safety & Security-One of the most obvious and most important reasons for team members to wear ID badges is safety of the people and security of the assets in your building. Whether in a business, hospital, school or warehouse, safety should be a huge priority. ID badges are an uncomplicated way of identifying and safeguarding students, staff, visitors or customers. ID badges can also be used for external and internal door access to keep your building, assets and paperwork secure and determine who will have access to which areas of your company. Without policies to show who should be in the building and where they should or shouldn’t be, people will be able to just come and go at will. 

Visitor Management-The use of ID badges in schools or businesses by all staff and/or students allows you to know who’s in your building and what the purpose and duration of the visit is. Requiring your students and staff or employees to display an ID badge will ensure that you can distinguish who should or shouldn’t be on property. For added visitor control, IDville’s Visitor Management solutions will benefit any industry. 

Time & Attendance-ID badges can also be a great tool for time clocks. This allows team members to clock hours efficiently while avoiding the hassle of maintaining a time card. Simply adding a barcode to your ID badge design for your time and attendance system will result in less paperwork and filing due to more efficient and streamlined timekeeping processes.

Team Morale-Having all team members wear an ID badge will improve everyone’s sense of inclusion. It will also allow a great opportunity for employees to recognize each other by name when passing by, even if they don’t work together regularly. Customizable ID badge accessories can also help to create a sense of unity among your team, regardless of position or department. Some companies have even begun setting up programs with local businesses where their employees will receive discounts by showing their ID badge – what a great way for your team to really feel important! 

Customer Service-If you’re in the service industry, requiring the display of ID badges allows customers to easily identify employees and put a face with a name, both building a rapport between the customer and employee and increasing employee accountability. Customers will be more apt to be able to address employees by their first name and because their name is prominently displayed, employees will be more likely to “be on their best behavior” while at work. Also, when customers can easily locate an employee when they need assistance this will improve the customer experience – boosting your company reputation. 

Student Services Combination-There has been an increase in schools using student ID badges for more than just student identification. Several schools have added functionality to ID badges for library check-out, meal credit, access to residence halls, equipment check-out, student sporting events and activity admittance, lab access or even for discounts at local businesses. 

Branding-Having an appealing, memorable ID badge is a great way to promote your company brand to both current and potential customers. By designing attractive, full-color ID badges prominently displaying your company name, logo and brand colors, you’re creating a great branding tool and customers will easily recognize your brand in the future. 

Whether you’re looking for a simple photo ID badge to identify people on property or you want a badge with “the works”, a simple decision to implement an ID badge policy will open numerous doors to future possibilities with those ID badges. Advances in technology create increasing uses for ID badges and the possibilities will continue to grow. With the security, convenience and improvements in customer service and team morale, an ID badge system pays for itself many times over.
