[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='24' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] “What a great team building event… but the photo has employees in front of a banner with the wrong Republic logo.”

“Did you hear how one of our employees saved a customer’s life? Too bad his photo has the wrong uniform – I’d love to recognize him.”
[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] We get some great Company news from each of you. But sometimes we lose the opportunity to recognize team successes or honor deserving employees when critical components are missing or off-brand. (Ever wonder why you never saw your story appear? Hint: this might be one of the reasons!)

Oh, but it is! If we want to be a brand easily recognized by customers and the general public, it needs to start with each of you.  And how will you know which logo to put on a banner or whether you’re wearing your uniform correctly if you see it five different ways in Blue Nation Online?

It’s our responsibility to make sure we’re showing each of you the right way to use and wear the Republic brand.

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] • Use the correct Republic logo everywhere, including event signage.

•  Make sure the uniforms are official, meaning employees must be wearing the correct shirt, hat and extras.

• Provide some context to your stories – give a location, name of event and employees if applicable, and the reason for the event. Basically, tell us how you’re making a difference.
