Set Your Staff Up For Success With A Personalized Program
Typically a staff member who works five days per week would need a personalized set of uniforms totaling 11 sets. This total inventory provides each team member with five sets of uniforms soiled and ready to be picked up at the time of delivery, five sets within the delivery, and the employee or team member wearing a uniform set at the time of delivery.
This is typically referred to as 5/11; the extra set of uniforms is also referenced as a swing set.
An employee who works 5 days per week would need a total inventory of 11 uniform sets.
