    i am curious how others handle the cost of uniforms.
    Does your company pay for 100% of the cost?
    Do you classify all or part of it as advertising?

    Rudolf,
    We have approached the uniform matter several different ways, utilizing a variety of leasing companies (Cintas, etc.) and also self pay/employee reimbursement arrangements. All have failed to meet our needs until recently. We now have a program with a sports and company apparel uniform provider where each employee is given a $200 initial allowance and we will then supplement that during the year with an additional $100. We have a customized website with all approved uniform items and each employee has a personalized account with the $ allowance available. They simply go on the site, order the items they need, use the credit available to pay for them, and they are then shipped to their house directly.
    As I indicated, this is the first program we have utilized that has addressed and solved all our previous challenges. Feel free to email me directly and I will be happy to share the information of our provider.
