In a recent blog post, the growing signage franchise offered some guidance on how signs could be used effectively to create clarity and order at work.
FASTSIGNS has been thriving in the industry for nearly 30 years, and in that time, the sign franchise’s network of experts has picked up some relevant tips for its commercial clients. Tip one: Make sure that your signs identify things clearly and inform anyone that reads them. In the words of FASTSIGNS, “Visually organise work-spaces and clearly identify production areas by hanging signs from the ceilings and on the surrounding walls. […] Communicate important instructions and clarify processes by placing labels and decals on equipment. Keep key messages and programs top of mind with digital signs.”
Tip two: Organise and collaborate with your signage to enhance employee experience. For instance, businesses could “make the most of the space in [the workplace] by utilising glass partitions with privacy film or display panels that can enhance decor while providing privacy when needed in offices, conference rooms and break rooms”. Plus, FASTSIGNS recommended that clients “encourage collaboration among team members with erasable glass boards that capture brainstorming sessions, track projects, and share meeting notes”.
Tip three: Use signs to direct and guide employees and visitors alike. Everyone should know “where to go and how to get there quickly and safely”, particularly in a commercial space. FASTSIGNS said, “Keep people and processes moving smoothly with wall and floor graphics, directories, sitemaps and A-frame signs. Incorporate a comprehensive visual communications plan at your company to improve communication, maximise efficiency and promote safety among your employees.” Find out more about franchising with FASTSIGNS and entering the in-demand signage industry via the company’s profile page, which you’ll discover linked above.
