VOICE OF EXPERIENCE
“While other companies have reduced costs by cutting benefits or cost-shifting to employees, we continue to provide a competitive benefits package, as our people are our greatest asset. The Liquidnet Adoption Assistance program is an important component of this package along with our Parental and Maternity Leave policies.”
– Jerilyn Medrea, Head of Global Talent Engagement, Liquidnet
“While adoption benefits are a perfect fit for a family-friendly workplace like ours, it was the positive response by those who would not be the direct users of the adoption benefit that sold us on its value.”
- Doug Reys, SPHR CCP CBP, Manager of Compensation and Benefits, Franklin International
“Putnam strives to deliver competitive employee benefits relative to size, our demographic and our industry. We truly value the diversity of our work force and aim to create programs that are responsive to the needs of our employees. Our adoption benefit is one such program. Other employees are aware of this generous benefit and it creates goodwill throughout the workplace and reinforces Putnam’s efforts to create a family-friendly culture.” – Karen Bishop, Vice President, Benefit Service Manager, Putnam
“Being an adoption-friendly workplace is an important aspect of our employer of choice philosophy here at The Timberland Company. Based on feedback from our employees, we were able to enhance our paid leave benefits last year. We are excited to offer this benefit enhancement to further assist those employees who have made the decision to adopt and support them through their journey.” – John Pazzani, Chief Culture Officer, The Timberland Company
“It’s fantastic to work for a company that offers such a great benefit and supports adoption overall. Adoptions can be expensive, and LSI makes it possible for employees who may be thinking of adopting to have a chance to do so.” – Scott Peiffer, LSI Corporation
“Adoption is a wonderful option for starting or building a family. The process can be emotional, time-consuming, and the costs can be substantial. We believe it’s important to financially assist employees in their efforts to adopt, as well as provide them with paid time off to bond with their new child. Helping colleagues through this life-changing event sends a strong message that we value personal well-being and family life.”
- Gautam Srivastava, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, LSI Corporation
“We knew adoption was our way of building our family. Wendy’s helped us through the whole process. For our foster care adoption, Wendy’s covered the minimal expense. We didn’t pay anything. It’s such a benefit to have help and support from your employer.”
- Teressa Johnson, Sensory Science Manager, Research & Development, Wendy’s
