The thirty five employees must wear shorts to work, and to client meetings or face a 25 cent fine. All donate at least one pair of pants to charity during the four week period ending August 20th.
We checked with partner Tim Brown to see what clients think of the policy. After some brief awkwardness, they all come around. One client, the Healthy Marriages board now refers to the firm as the “shorts people.”
