Teacher Lanyards to Hold ID Cards and Key Fobs
Despite the name, teacher lanyards aren't just for educational staff members. Sure, the training staff, on-site day care staff or community education staff on your team fit into the teacher category, but anyone who has an ID badge, keys or key fobs to carry around can use one. Lanyards prominently display ID cards and keep keys close at hand, to keep your office safe and running efficiently, no matter what the industry.
Keep Credentials on Display
Have you ever tried clipping an ID tag to your shirt? It inevitably bunches your clothing, twists around, sticks out, or otherwise looks and feels ridiculous. Lanyards take that awkward clipping out of the equation while still letting staff display their credentials. In a small office where everyone knows each other, an outsider sticks out instantly and IDs aren't necessary. In larger offices with multiple departments, it's tough to know everyone else. If your office requires employees to wear ID badges, either because of the size of the company or the security requirements, a lanyard is an easy way to keep those IDs easy to see. The ID hangs down in the front, where security guards or fellow employees can verify the person belongs in a particular area. Easy for employees and safe for the company, it's a win-win situation.
Breeze Through Secure Doors
Another layer of security in many offices these days comes in the form of locked doors. That could be just the main entrance door or in specific areas throughout the building when a particular area has higher security requirements to enter. Whether employees use a key fob pressed to a pad near the door or an old-fashioned key, keeping the unlocking method close at hand helps them get where they need to go faster. Attach the key fob or key to the lanyard, and you eliminate any fumbling or digging in pockets just to get through the door. Retractable lanyards work well for this purpose. They look like a normal lanyard, but the clip that holds items is attached to a retractable piece. Grab the key fob, and stretch it out to reach the pad without bending over.
Express Personal Style
Lanyards aren't the boring office accessory that some people think they are. Sure, a fair share of lanyards come in basic colors with no design on them, but these plain lanyards in neutral colors work well in busy offices with professional attire where a decorative lanyard seems out of place. If your office is a little more laid back, let your employees show off their personalities with lanyards in bright colors or fun patterns. For the staff who love to wear jewelry, check out the beaded lanyards that look more like a necklace than an ID holder. With so many styles to choose from, a lanyard fashion show down the rows of cubicles can provide amusement at an office party.
