You see a sign, we see…

There’s no point beating around the bush: we love signs! Clear, well-designed and useful communication is what we’re all about at Melo. We are passionate about the difference it can make to your operation. You might look around your work environment and see a sign, but we see…

An effective health and safety policy with staff welfare at the heart

Displaying health and safety information in the workplace is a legal obligation for employers, but the ways in which you do this can mean so much more than simply fulfilling your responsibilities. By using health and safety signage you ensure the relevant information is easily seen and understood by employees. Supporting it with additional boards helps you stand out as an employer that genuinely cares about the welfare of their staff.

An organisation committed to standards

Companies that display their values, mission statement and elements that make up their ethos and culture, need to ensure that they live up to these standards and levels that they have set for themselves. By displaying inner standards, whether in a visitor reception area, within offices or meeting rooms, companies are making a bold statement about who they are, what they stand for and what they are committed to, which can tell you a lot about a business and their priorities.

Effective LEAN management in action

Organisations using LEAN and 5S methodologies are all about continuous improvements in the workplace; visual communication and signs can play a big role in how effectively this is done. A work environment that is based around improving means, naturally, that it is constantly changing. That can sometimes be confusing for employees. Well thought out visual management means that it can be clear where is all that matters. Critical information can be communicated instantly in the exact place where it is needed.

Great organisation and efficiency

Inefficiency and disorganisation in a business can be very costly in both time and money waste. It can also demotivate staff, which can lead to more waste in simple mistakes, whatever industry you operate in. Visual communication can make a huge difference in this area. Visual aids and prompts that provide critical information make it easier for people to do their jobs, complete tasks within the right timeframe and make fewer mistakes. That’s a win all round for companies and their staff.

An impressed client and new business won

While it’s unlikely that a single sign or display is going to directly win you a new client on its own, an organisation that effectively uses visual communication and signage can make a great impression on potential and existing clients. It conveys not only the literal messages, but also shows that this is an organisation that care about the details, values clarity and transparency, is organised and efficient. These are all values that can make a real difference to how you are perceived and remembered.
