Beyond our day‐to‐day
Enhancing the employee experience

Transforming the employee experience.   

In 2012, we replaced underperforming annual performance reviews with ongoing Check-in conversations between employees and their managers. The result? Voluntary attrition dropped and morale soared as employees felt more nurtured and managers felt more empowered. And now, we've open-sourced our tools and resources so other companies can start Check-in programs of their own.

Empowering creative individuals.

At Adobe, we think creative visual content is essential to human culture. So in 2015, we established the Adobe Creative Residency — a program that gives two talented artists the opportunity to focus on a personal creative project for one year, and to share their work and discoveries with the creative community.
