QBE named adoption-friendly workplace | Insurance Business America
QBE has announced that it has received the Adoption-Friendly Workplace Award from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. This is the seventh consecutive year QBE has received the award.
QBE supports employees who adopt by offering eligible employees eight weeks of paid parental leave and up to $10,000 in financial reimbursement. All working parents receive guidance on preparing for parental leave and returning to work, back-up childcare options for when regular care is unavailable, and childcare discounts, special needs assistance and education advice.
“We are proud to once again make the list of adoption-friendly workplaces, because supporting the diverse parental needs of our employees is a strong aspect of our culture at QBE,” said Joy Matthews, vice president of total rewards at QBE North America. “Our Adoption Assistance Program underscores QBE’s commitment to offering meaningful support when employees open their hearts to adoption.”
