Washington, DC (September 27, 2010) —NCB, a leading financial services company dedicated to serving cooperatives nationwide, was recently recognized as one of the Best Adoption-Friendly Family Workplaces in America by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
“We are honored to receive such an important recognition from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption,” said Charles E. Snyder, President and CEO of NCB. “Our employees are the heart of the Bank, and we are proud to create an environment that allows them to flourish in both their professional and private lives.”
The Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces in America list includes the top 100 organizations that provide exceptional support to employees who adopt. Rankings are based on the amount of financial assistance and paid leave provided. The Foundation compiled the results from survey data collected from nearly 500 U.S. employers and partnered with Employee Benefit News, a SourceMedia publication that is the leading source of information for benefits decision makers, to announce the winners.
Today, more than 123,000 children are available for adoption in U.S. foster care. Most will spend nearly four years in the system before they are adopted. The release of the fourth annual Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces List helps the Foundation increase foster care adoption awareness while celebrating those businesses that support adoptive families.
