SAS Institute

SAS Institute, a privately-held software company, was recognized by CWLA as a Corporate Friend of Children in 2003. SAS was nominated by the National Adoption Center in Philadelphia for its adoption assistance employee benefits, which include a $5,000 reimbursement for adoption expenses, four weeks of paid leave, resource and referral services, and an ongoing adoption support network.

SAS President and CEO Jim Goodnight says the move to take better care of employees was not simply a result of the tight job market and high-tech boom of a few years ago, but rather a critical business strategy that is becoming increasingly important. According to Goodnight, "Helping employees deal with issues outside of the workplace that have a direct impact on performance is critical in creating a workplace that truly works for employees and customers alike." George Farthling, Senior Vice President of Community Relations, accepted the award on behalf of SAS Institute at CWLA's National Conference in Washington, DC.
