Case Study: John’s Crazy Socks Creates Custom Socks for Rangam
John’s Crazy Socks has created custom socks for many corporations and not-for-profits – large and small. Organizations use custom socks to promote their brand, using their logo and signature colors. They give them to employees, customers, and clients to foster company and brand loyalty. Custom socks are memorable and unique gifts that help keep your company in the minds of all who wear and see them!
Rangam, a New Jersey-based workforce solutions company, wanted to create socks that reflected their philosophy that “empathy drives innovation.” They worked with the John’s Crazy Socks design team to create a design that included the word “Empathy” and some of their unique brand elements. The result was a beautiful sock that they distributed to their employees throughout the country.
On May 12, John and Mark Cronin, the founders of John’s Crazy Socks, travelled to Somerset, New Jersey to personally deliver the socks and to meet with the Rangam leadership team. Rangam and John’s Crazy Socks share a key mission – to create more employment opportunities for individuals with differing abilities. Both companies know that if you give individuals with differing abilities who are ready, willing, and able to work a chance at meaningful employment, it makes your company more competitive in the marketplace. As Mark Cronin, the co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks often says, ‘hiring individuals with differing abilities is not altruism, it’s good business.”
"We love what John's Crazy Socks is doing to showcase the strengths and creativity of people with differing abilities," Rangam CEO and Co-founder Nish Parikh said. "Their empowering mission aligns well with Rangam's core values around diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) in the workplace.”
Kevin Sames, an Executive Business Associate at Rangam said, “Wonderful Socks - great working with the team to get a design everyone loved.”
