Once again, Sears Holdings is ranked in the top 100 in the 2014 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
The rankings are determined by an analysis of a company’s adoption benefits (e.g., financial reimbursement and paid leave) available to employees that adopt. The Foundation compiled the results from survey data collected from nearly 500 U.S. employers. The release of the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces List helps the Foundation increase foster care adoption awareness while celebrating those businesses that support adoptive families.

“We are incredibly excited and grateful to see a growing number of employers across the country provide adoption benefits for employees,” said Rita Soronen, President and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “Adoption, and in particular adoption from foster care, is an important and increasingly common path to parenthood; we commend all of the employers across the country who recognize the importance of providing benefits to employees looking to expand their families through adoption.”
