A lanyard is a cord or attractive rope material that is worn around the neck. Lanyards have clips or rings in which keys, whistles; a pocketknife or name tags can be attached to. The military has used them for years, as have the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts.
Employees who must wear name tags and carry keys, such as would be found in a hospital, custom printed lanyards with the hospital name would be worn. Any type of business where the employee must wear a name tag can be worn at the end of a lanyard that has the business stamped on the cord.
Lanyards with a business name help to promote the business. They are very inexpensive and are generally given to employees for their use. If the employee chooses to hook their personal keys to them, they would carry it everywhere. Everywhere they go will be advertising the business.
