Newly Weds Foods believes in the importance of family and that offering adoption benefits to our employees makes perfect sense and is the right thing to do.
That is why we are honored to be included on the 14th annual list of Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Congratulations to all the organizations on this year’s list and it is a privilege to be recognized with so many other industry leaders for this distinction.
Without corporate support, many potential parents would not be able to adopt because of the significant costs associated with the process. An organization’s support for adoption provides a direct payback for children in need of parents and, families who are willing to open their hearts and homes. Employers have the opportunity to create an adoption-friendly culture and celebrate the families formed as the direct result of thoughtful adoption policies. In addition to helping offset some of the financial burdens, employers can accomplish this by instituting flexible work and time off schedules as well as offer post-adoption resources for new parents. It is also good to make adoption education available for those who are interested but don’t know where or how to begin.
Newly Weds Foods has a great appreciation for all families, no matter how they came to be. That is fostered in our corporate culture of mutual respect for all individuals. Each day our staff owns what they do, and empowers others around them to do the same. Communicating new ideas or a better way to do something is supported and welcomed. All employees are treated like family whether hourly or salaried and every member of management supports an open-door policy to encourage and maintain this kind of work environment.
