The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption publishes an annual report on the 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces. This list includes companies of every size and industry that support adoptive families. These companies have created an Adoption-Friendly Workplace to make adoption a supported option for every working family.
In 2016, the 100 featured workplaces gave an average of $8,000 toward financial reimbursement of adoption expenses to their employees, five weeks in paid leave, unpaid leave, and support for foster parents.
Outside of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s published list, which only includes companies who have completed their survey, many other small businesses to large enterprises make adoption support core to their benefits packages. Yet, less than half of employers in the United States offer adoption benefits. Here are some of the standout companies in their respective industries.
