Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace Survey Closing Soon

May 3, 2018 10:00 AM ET

Each year the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption recognizes employers in the United States that offer adoption benefits to their employees. Each year the Foundation is thrilled to see more and more companies recognizing the significance of adoption benefits. This time away from work allows families to bond and the financial reimbursement for private adoptions and international adoptions is critical to many families.

In 2018, one of the Top 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces was the Commonwealth of Kentucky. A state led by a Governor who is an adoptive father himself. Employees of the state recognize the importance of this benefit.

"I cannot even begin to describe the joy of being a father; it is the most wonderful experience of my life. I am so blessed to work for an employer that not only provides an adoption benefit but also afforded me the ability the spend time with my new son." The King family adopted thanks in part to benefits offered by Steve's employer, the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Other top employers include American Express, Capital One, Ferring Pharmaceuticals and The Wendy’s Company.​
