Each year, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s annual Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace list recognizes U.S. companies that support families growing through adoption. The annual survey is judged first on financial assistance and second on paid time off given to employees after they adopt. While not all of the companies that applied make the list, we appreciate all organizations that offer adoption benefits and support families.

Along with ranking the top 100 companies in the U.S. the list also breaks out the industry leaders in categories like media, telecommunications, research, government, finance, healthcare, pharmaceutical and more.

We appreciate industry leaders like Ferring Pharmaceutical, Hanes Brand, Viacom, T-Mobile, NBA, Bloomberg, MetLife and Abbott. These companies not only lead the top 100 list, but stand out from the crowd in their respective industries.

"Providing family-friendly benefits is at the heart of T-Mobile's benefits program,” said Tina Marshall, Senior Director- Benefits & Recognition.

Hanes Brand echoes T-Mobiles commitment and like many of the Top 100 companies recognizes that family-friendly benefits help retain top talent.

"We place a strong emphasis on employee health, wellness and work/life balance, and we are very proud to offer our employees this benefit to help them navigate the joyful but sometimes complex process of adopting a child," said Vice President of Human Resources and Global Compensation Annamarie D'Souza. "This benefit helps our employees and their families, while helping Hanes retain and attract the very best workforce."
