What is Adoption Assistance?
Adoption assistance is a way for you to help support employees who are beginning the adoption process. This can be a challenging and lengthy process for employees, so having a programme in place that offers guidance and financial support.
Adopting a child can be an expensive process — the costs can vary depending on the age of the child. Adoption assistance comes in the form of financial support that is given to employees towards the cost of their adoption. This level of care can make a meaningful impact to the lives of your employees.
