Unum has increased the adoption assistance it offers employees in its latest effort to grow and enhance its family-friendly benefit offerings. The insurance company will now provide $25,000 to employees adopting a child, up from the $5,000 it previously offered.
The benefit is available to all full-time U.S. employees who have worked at Unum for a year. Part-time employees also can take advantage of the program, but with a reduced benefit amount depending on their hours, Unum says.
The company says the benefit is a way to support its 9,500 U.S. employees, boost wellbeing and invest in its workforce.
