142dHow Simon Jersey worked with Iceland to improve their staff relations (and appearance).case studyContract Awarded - 2010Wearers - 22,000Location - United KingdomTHE REQUIREMENTThis year Simon Jersey is celebrating 40 years in the corporate clothing business. Last year it was the turn of frozen food expert Iceland to celebrate their 40th year in business, and it was during 2010 that Simon Jersey was approached to create a fresh new look for Iceland's whole workforce - all 22,000 of them. From home delivery drivers right through to store managers, each member of staff required a uniform that not only was practical to work in but looked great too.THE SOLUTIONIceland required a versatile uniform range that would carry the company brand as well as connecting the various departments and job roles. So who better to play a part in how the new uniform should look than the staff themselves. Together, Simon Jersey and Iceland ran a competition that invited staff to design a new uniform that was fit for purpose. Winners of the competition were invited to Simon Jersey's Head Office for a day where the new garments were presented to them. Manufactured, delivered and launched within a four-month period, the new uniform proved to be a perfect way to commemorate their 40th birthday.
143THE RESPONSE "2010 was a big year for us as it marked the 40th year of being a market leader in the frozen food business. We felt it was the perfect time to update our uniform so we came to Simon Jersey for a new workwear solution. We were extremely impressed with the expertise, service, choice and remarkably quick turnaround we received. Our team love the new look, especially as Simon Jersey enabled them to play such a big part in the design process."Keith Harrison,Trading Operations Manager (Non-Food), Iceland Retail Operations.www.simonjersey.com/casestudy50-500 wearers call 0844 576 5562 500+ wearers call 0844 576 5561Scan theQR code above for more information.
