Further proves that TCG “Values our families.”
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, the only national nonprofit charity dedicated solely to finding permanent homes for children in foster care, has recognized TCG on its annual list of the nation’s 100 most adoption‐friendly workplaces. TCG ranks 3rd among all small U.S. businesses adoption benefits, and 63rd overall businesses.
TCG was recognized for the company’s adoption assistance program. Full‐time TCG‐ers who adopt a child are eligible for a reimbursement of up to $7,500 per adoption to help cover legal fees, court costs, adoption agency fees, and travel expenses. This new benefit is in addition to TCG’s three‐week parental leave (paid time off) for adoptions, plus up to 12 weeks of leave without pay (and more for DC residents). The adoption assistance is available immediately to all who qualify.
The brains behind this benefit, TCG’s President Daniel Turner, explained why this type of benefit is important. “I think adopting a child is amazing. In addition to the whole ‘raising a child’ thing, which is itself not easy, adoption has significant societal benefits. I want to make it a little easier to do that. I hope that offering this benefit accomplishes that goal.”
