ADNET Technologies announced today a new employee benefit program called “Jeans for Charity,” which provides an optional alternative to the company’s traditionally business casual dress code.
For an annual donation of $50, employees can choose to wear jeans every day as a component of their professional attire. The annual donation will be matched by ADNET, and will be gifted to one or more charities at the end of each year. Winners are selected at random from the charities nominated by ADNET employees throughout the year.
“Many companies in our industry have adapted their dress codes to meet the changing needs of the workforce” said Executive Vice President Christopher Luise. “This program benefits both our employees and the community by raising awareness of the work being performed by charities that are meaningful to our team. By matching their donations, we are able to demonstrate our commitment to serving our community as well as supporting our employees.”
In 2015, an earlier version of the program that permitted employees to wear jeans on Fridays enabled charitable gifts to be provided to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America and Wishes on Wheels, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
