When you're a top international law firm like Alston & Bird, your employees face demanding workdays and often need help tending to their personal and family lives.

At Alston & Bird, the team knows that a comprehensive suite of benefits is critical to employee wellbeing. "We realize that when we hire someone, we hire the person and their family - the whole person - regardless of whether their family is them and three kids or a millennial with her dog, or whatever their family might look like," says Hillary Bowers, senior benefits coordinator at Alston & Bird. "We want to be able to help them."

Support for the Whole Family

The implementation of an infant transition program, on-site child care, back-up care, college preparation, and adult/elder care has enabled Alston & Bird's employees and their families to manage all stages of life.

"Employees love the fact that we offer this suite of benefits," says Hilary. "We can really assist them in their lives when their children are infants, all the way through to adulthood.

A Win-Win Situation

These benefits not only help employees, they also support Alston & Bird's recruitment and employee retention, especially in today's competitive job market.

"It does make me want to stay with the firm longer, because I realize they care about me as an individual," says Devin Schafer, who has taken advantage of Alston & Bird's drop-in child care benefit.
