From a recent press release by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption:
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption released its 13th annual Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces list recognizing organizations with the most robust adoption benefit programs. The list compares financial reimbursement and paid leave offered to employees who adopt, based on a survey of organizations across the United States. The Foundation partnered with RTI International, an independent, nonprofit research institute, to conduct this year’s survey.
The annual list encompasses a wide variety of organizations that are being recognized for their efforts to “make adoption a supported option for every working parent.”
The 2019 list includes a diverse group of organizations, with three to nearly 350,000 employees, representing 23 industries. On average, employers that completed the survey offer $9,362 in financial reimbursement, which is up 1.2% from 2018. The average amount of paid leave was 7.4 weeks, up 1.3% from last year’s list.
