The FIFA World Cup is big news all around the world, and including right here in Australia. From Perth to Brisbane and from Melbourne to Sydney, people are talking about the game. While they may be busy talking about missed shots, who played a great game and more, there are little things that are going on that help to make the game run smoother. These little things may be overlooked by most, but people like us pick up on those things. Take, for example, name badges and the World Cup. While you may not realise it, there are plenty of people involved with the World Cup who are or should be wearing name badges. 

Having people wear name badges on the job is just a good habit and policy to get into. This goes for whether you run a coffee shop down the road or you are helping people to find their seats at the World Cup games. Name badges are sign of professionalism and help to create a friendlier atmosphere. Most people welcome them in just about any type of situation. In addition to name badges helping to provide a friendlier and more professional atmosphere, they also help to hold people accountable. With someone’s name right on their chest on a name badge, they are more likely to provide better customer service. 

Here are 5 World Cup employees and attendees who should be wearing name badges if they are not already doing so: 

  1. Referees. Having the referees wear name badges may help create a little more respect on the field. Some players, referees, and coaches may get worked up at certain calls during the game. But name badges can help to maintain a friendlier atmosphere. Referees are an important part of the World Cup games and having them wear name badges is something that most of the players and fans would likely appreciate.
  2. Ushers. When people are looking for their seats they usually need the help of the usher. It’s nice for the ushers to wear name badges, especially considering their sole job is to provide customer service. Everyone in customer service should be wearing name badges so that when working with customers the customer will know who is helping them. This helps to improve customer service and hold people more accountable.
  3. Players. Some have suggested this week that the World Cup players themselves should be wearing name badges. This is because some of the coaches from opposing teams are not familiar with who the players are. Having them wear name badges will help coaches, referees, and fans be able to identify players, especially those players who may be lesser known.
  4. Security. Every stadium has those who work in security positions. Having those in security wear name badges is a good idea, even if it is to provide a last name. People like to be able to identify who they are speaking with, or who may be helping them, making name badges important for this reason.
  5. Journalists. There are many journalists who are covering the FIFA World Cup games. While some of the journalists may be wearing press credentials, others may be more difficult to identify. Ideally, journalists should wear name badges so that everyone knows they are a journalist and what media outlet they work for.

There are plenty of people associated with the World Cup games who can benefit from wearing name badges. But this is a good start! People around Australia, including in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, and beyond, continue to watch. They may not be able to see the name badges from the television screen, but those who are in attendance at the games can surely benefit!
