John and Mark Cronin-John's Crazy Socks

The doors of employment are indeed made open to the differently abled staff working at John’s Crazy Socks. Hear, in their own voices, how ‘sock wranglers’ pick and pack product with exuberance. Employees discuss how welcoming persons of diverse and varied abilities along with ‘neurotypical’ colleagues positively impacts the workforce. 

This is an inclusive vision that resonates with DDI’s own mission – one we have long embraced and championed.
