Baker Tilly Named One of America’s Best Workplaces for Adoption for Third Year

CHICAGO (October 16, 2018) – The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption named leading accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) a 2018 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace.

“Our team members grow their families in many ways,” Baker Tilly Chief Human Resources Officer Karleen Mussman said. “As a progressive firm we are delighted to provide the flexibility and resources to support them.”

Baker Tilly’s employee programs and policies are designed to help team members manage the ever evolving and increasingly complicated nature of family life. Baker Tilly has been recognized for providing an inclusive and positive workplace environment enabled in part by parental policies that offer paid adoption leave for new parents and financial reimbursement for a portion of the expenses related to adoption.

Baker Tilly’s paid parental leave policy provides more than six weeks of paid leave at 100 percent of regular earnings to adoptive and foster parents. 

Every year, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption announces America’s top 100 adoption-friendly employers from its annual survey of U.S. 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.
