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 also provides 10 weeks of paid leave at 100 percent of regular earnings the firm provides to new mothers following the birth of a child. In addition, Baker Tilly has a 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.
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.
