More than 25 years ago, Dave Thomas led an initiative advocating for better adoption benefits in the workplace, because to him, it was just “the right thing to do.” The Foundation has carried that legacy forward through its signature Adoption-Friendly Workplace program and annual 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces list, which recognizes organizations that strive to make adoption a supported option for every working parent.
NEW for 2019!
The Foundation is partnering with RTI International, an independent, nonprofit research institute, to make survey submission easier than ever — in 15 minutes or less!
All organizations that complete the survey will receive benchmark and breakout lists by industry, size, paid leave and foster care. Additionally, the Foundation’s new impact list will recognize organizations with more than 1,000 employees that offer the most generous paid leave for adoptive parents.
The 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces will have the opportunity to:
– Elevate your organization’s story through a guest article on the Foundation’s website and social media channels
– Earn a badge to feature on your organization’s website and human resources materials
Year-after-year, both public and private organizations are raising the bar with their adoption benefits. When you join in, you are advancing the Foundation’s vision that every child will have a permanent home and loving family.
