Baker Tilly Named One of America’s Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AFW–Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) is pleased to announce
that it was named one of the 2016 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by
the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Baker Tilly offers its
employees paid adoption leave for new parents and financial
reimbursement for a portion of the expenses related to adoption.

“We are proud to be recognized for our support of employees who choose
to adopt,” Baker Tilly Chief Human Resources Officer Karleen Mussman
said. “Fostering an inclusive workplace means valuing parents and
providing policies that encourage them to play an active role in their
family lives.”

Baker Tilly recently implemented an expanded paid parental leave policy
that provides over six weeks of paid leave at 100 percent of regular
earnings to new fathers, adoptive parents and foster parents. The
expansion of Baker Tilly’s paid parental leave policy comes as a
complement to the 10 weeks of paid leave at 100 percent of regular
earnings the firm provides to new mothers following the birth of a child.

Every year, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption announces America’s
top 100 adoption-friendly employers from its annual survey of US
employers. Rankings are determined by an analysis of a company’s
adoption benefits, including the maximum amount of financial
reimbursement and paid leave for families who adopt.

“We’re committed to dramatically increasing the number of adoptions from
foster care, and commend all employers who support families – especially
those that grow their families through adoption,” Rita Soronen,
president and CEO of the Foundation, said. “We are so grateful to every
company that has adoption-friendly benefits in place, and we’re honored
to recognize them as an Adoption-Friendly Workplace.”
