QBE Named a Top Adoption-Friendly Workplace for 7th Consecutive Year

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, OCTOBER 6, 2022 -- QBE is once again a recipient of the Adoption-Friendly Workplace Award from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

QBE supports employees' efforts to grow their families through adoption by offering eligible employees eight weeks paid parental leave and up to $10,000 financial reimbursement. Additionally, all working parents receive guidance on preparing for parental leave and returning to work, back-up childcare options for when regular care is unavailable, as well as childcare discounts, special needs assistance and educational advising.

"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, Total Rewards, QBE North America. “Our Adoption Assistance Program underscores QBE’s commitment to offering meaningful support when employees open their hearts to adoption.”

Since 2007, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has compiled an annual list of the top adoption-friendly workplaces. Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces are determined by an analysis of financial assistance and paid leave for families who adopt, based on surveys completed by employers.
