12 Nov Creative Lodging Solutions® Named One of America’s Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces for the Fourth Year
Lexington, KY, November 12, 2014 – Creative Lodging Solutions, a leading travel management company, announced that it has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year for its employee adoption benefits by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Creative Lodging Solutions was ranked second in the travel industry on the organization’s 2014 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces List.
“After adopting one of my own children, I realized the importance of offering adoption benefits to our employees and am proud that Creative Lodging Solutions assists other families within our company in growing their families through adoption,” said Mike Tetterton, CEO and founder of Creative Lodging Solutions.
Since 2008, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has compiled an annual list of the 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces to honor employers who offer the best adoption benefits in the U.S. The rankings, compiled from an annual survey of U.S. employers, are determined by an analysis of each company’s adoption benefits, including the maximum financial reimbursement and the amount of paid leave provided for employees who adopt.
“We are incredibly excited and grateful to see a growing number of employers across the country provide adoption benefits for employees,” said Rita Soronen, President and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “Adoption, and in particular adoption from foster care, is an important and increasingly common path to parenthood; we commend all of the employers across the country who recognize the importance of providing benefits to employees looking to expand their families through adoption.”
The eighth annual Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces list also helps increase foster care adoption awareness while celebrating businesses that support adoptive families. There are more than 100,000 children in the U.S. foster care system waiting to be adopted. Every year, more than 20,000 children in foster care turn 18 and age out of the system without families.
