American Electric Power employees who adopt children get a little help from their employer: 30 hours of paid leave and $3,000 per child.

One of the largest utilities in the country, American Electric Power has helped 72 of its employees with adoptions. Curt Cooper, the utility’s director of employee benefits, says adoption assistance helps the company as well as its employees.

In fact, studies show that although few employees take advantage of workplace adoption benefits, they value their companies for offering them. One study revealed that more than half of large employers offer some sort of adoption benefit, from cash to paid time off to referrals to employee support groups.
