Bospar, the Politely Pushy® tech PR agency, has announced its Texas Relocation Plan in response to the state’s new abortion ban, the most restrictive such law in the United States. Under the new plan, Bospar will pay for the expenses of any staff member needing to relocate to ensure they have control of their reproductive health. Bospar will offer this plan to other staff members if other states also pass laws restricting reproductive healthcare.
“Companies and businesses with employees in Texas have a choice right now: offer employees control of their own reproductive health or risk them leaving,” said Sarah Freeman, a Bospar senior account executive based in Austin. “Right now, my friends in their 20s and 30s are asking themselves, ‘Should I leave Texas?’ Since Bospar pioneered the virtual work-from-home model at a national level in 2015, relocating and staying with my company is no problem. Now that the agency is offering to pay for relocation, that makes the decision process that much easier.”
“To incentivize neighbors and friends to create Gilead-on-the-Brazos is political overreach that will result in Texas losing its most talented workforce to California, New York and everywhere in between,” said Curtis Sparrer, a Bospar principal, referring to the aspect of the law that encourages citizens to sue clinics and others who violate the law with a $10,000 award if they are successful. “As a company that wants to maintain and attract the best talent, Bospar believes this relocation program – or evacuation program – makes good business sense. We predict other companies will take similar action to retain the best talent until Texas reverses this self-inflicted brain drain.”
