Tingdene Lifestyle set to launch new uniform for a new era
Back in 2008 we launched and rolled our first uniform across our portfolio. Whilst it was suitable at the time, it had become tired and outdated. This appeared to be the perfect opportunity to refresh the look of the company’s uniform and have an update! We take a look a behind the scenes of the making of Tingdene Lifestyle’s new uniform for a new era…..
Using our own team to design the uniform of the future!
Most company’s would turn to external sources for inspiration and help in designing a company uniform. Tingdene Lifestyle however looked closer to home, our own team in fact!
‘‘In a bid to be involved in the process, a very excited Mel and I approached the Tingdene Lifestyle Group Operations team with the request to start the process, which was agreed. Firstly, we spoke to other team members to learn what it was about the uniform that they did and didn’t favour, and how we could improve the uniform going forward. It was very clear that from the information we received that comfort, style and durability were key factors to be considered. After some brainstorming, idea sharing and of course, bearing in mind the feedback from other team members, we were able to approach our chosen uniform supplier with a detailed brief. Mel and I were both in agreement that we wanted the colour scheme of the new uniform to fit the branding of Tingdene Lifestyle. From the very beginning we knew that incorporating a palette of blue, navy and white would immediately modernise the uniform and deliver a professional image. With regards to style and comfort, we reflected on the feedback and recognised that the previous uniform was quite restrictive with regards to body shapes and sizes, as there were minimal garment options available. The new uniform we have chosen offers a variety of styles of garments incorporated within the same range to offer versatility, comfort and style. We hope the Tingdene Lifestyle team will enjoy wearing the new uniform which will be launched in the coming few months!’’

What the team say..
“The new uniform is smart, comfortable, low maintenance (the blouses don’t need ironing!!) and I feel much more confident coming to work in it. There is a variety of products within the range so it’s lovely to have the choice to mix it up a bit to suit each individual. So many people have said how nice it looks and I can now get out of the car without worrying that the skirt is going to rip!”
Hannah Hewitt - Tingdene Lifestyle
“The new, modern uniform offers a fresh and professional appearance. There is a range of different styles available to all and is a welcomed introduction to Tingdene Holiday Parks.”
