American Express today announced that it has been named to Conceive magazine's annual "50 Best Companies" list, a showcase of employers who are leading the way in corporate America with their generous family-building benefits. American Express offers many family-friendly benefits such as, up to twelve weeks of family and medical leave, up to six continuous weeks of parental leave, reimbursable adoption assistance fees, infertility medical assistance, legal assistance and much more.
Released in the Summer 2010 issue of Conceive, and available on www.ConceiveOnline.com, the list highlights U.S. companies offering their employees the best benefits for starting or adding to their families. The rankings are based on the company's fertility and adoption coverage, including benefits for assisted reproductive technology (ART) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), infertility prescription drugs, paid parental leave, and cash reimbursement towards adoption expenses.
"We are proud to be included as one of Conceive magazine's '50 Best Companies'," said David Kasiarz, Senior Vice President for Compensation and Benefits for American Express. "We believe it is a business imperative to offer distinctive and innovative programs that will assist our employees during each stage of their lives."
"Companies like American Express are raising the bar on the fertility and adoption coverage being offered by U.S. employers," said Beth Weinhouse, editorial director of Conceive. "We salute their commitment to their employees, and their employees' families."
