SAS again named one of the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces in America


Dave Thomas Foundation honors top 100 employers in North America

CARY, NC - SAS, the leader in business analytics, has been named one of the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces in America for the third consecutive year by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. A renowned employer of choice, SAS has offered adoption assistance for 20 years, paid adoption leave for 12 and onsite childcare since 1981.

“SAS is committed to supporting families through a comprehensive benefit package, numerous employee programs and a flexible work environment. It’s the right thing to do, but also has measurable bottom-line benefit for the company,” said Jennifer Mann, Vice President of Human Resources at SAS. “Our commitment creates loyal employees who foster long-term customer relationships.”

Rankings for the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace list are determined by an analysis of a company’s adoption benefits – financial reimbursement and paid leave – available to employees who adopt. The foundation compiled the results from survey data collected from 753 US employers. Employee Benefit News, a SourceMedia publication that is the leading source of information for benefits decision makers, helped extend the survey’s scope even further by inviting readers to participate.

“We continue to see increases in the number of companies establishing and enhancing adoption benefit policies. Even with today’s tough economy, we found that companies are dedicated more than ever to providing competitive benefits packages to help their employees when they adopt,” said Rita Soronen, Executive Director of the foundation. “It is one benefit that employers can add without negatively impacting the bottom line.”
