Robins & Morton named to 2014 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces list
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Nov. 10, 2014)— Robins & Morton, a privately held construction and engineering company, announced today that it has been named one of the “Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces” in the United States by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Robins & Morton ranked #1 in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry and was the #23 overall company based on the combination of financial assistance and paid leave offered to employees who adopt. This is the third consecutive year that the company has been named to the list.
“Robins & Morton has helped make our dream of having children become a reality,” said Gentry Jones of Robins & Morton, who along with his wife has just adopted their second child. “The love that was shown to us before, during, and after the adoption was impressive; Robins & Morton is a company that stands head and shoulders above the rest. Our second adoption has been equally as joyful!”
Rankings for the Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces List are determined by an analysis of a company’s adoption benefits available to employees who adopt, such as financial reimbursement and paid leave. The Foundation compiled the results from its annual survey of U.S. employers and partnered with Employee Benefit News, a SourceMedia publication providing information to benefits executives.
“Providing our people and their families great benefits is a natural extension of our family-oriented company culture,” said Bill Morton, President and CEO of Robins & Morton, “and that includes supporting them during the adoption process.”
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption celebrates companies with the best adoption benefits for their employees. Every year, the foundation compiles a list of the top 100 adoption-friendly workplaces – the best small, medium, and large employers. Their vision is that every child will have a permanent home and a loving family.
