Our employees are our most valuable asset. That’s why we actively support and reward their efforts to pursue their passions in the workplace, at home, and in the community. We know that each person's ideas, personal and professional well-being, and enthusiastic involvement are essential to the sustained success of our organization — and crucial to the quality of work-life balance our employees deserve.
We proudly invest in the professional growth of our employees.
At Adobe, our dynamic work environment inspires creativity, and we consider learning an essential part of the process. Our employees are encouraged to explore their boundaries, continue their training, and develop their professional skill sets through courses, summits, lectures, mentorships, and more.
Adobe offers a broad spectrum of learning experiences and other skill-building opportunities to meet the varying needs of employees. Beginning with a personalized Individual Development Plan, employees can choose from a variety of learning options, including:
• On-demand eLearning courses available 24x7
• In-classroom and live, online training
• Unique opportunities to learn from external thought leaders and internal experts through leadership seminars, weekly Knowing the Business sessions, and the Distinguished Lecture Series
As we position ourselves for more global growth, we have put more focus on building our leadership pipeline with increased efforts in building management and leadership capabilities. We have moved from primarily classroom training to a more blended learning approach that maximizes the learning experience and leverages our leaders as teachers.
Global employees can also tap into Adobe's Educational Reimbursement Program, which helps pay for business- and technology-related classes through accredited colleges and universities. In North America alone, Adobe invested over $1 million in this program in 2011.
