What results have we seen to date?
Since rolling out Check-in, Adobe has redeployed the time managers spent administering the annual review process to more impactful Check-in conversations and important business priorities. We saved an estimated 80,000 manager hours spent on the formal review process in the first year of Check-in, and with headcount growth since then, we believe we now save more than 100,000 manager hours each year. We’ve also seen a drop in voluntary attrition and an increase in involuntary departures from employees who aren’t meeting expectations.
Our annual employee surveys also attest to the success of Check-in. Between 2012 and 2015, we've seen a 10% increase in the number of employees who say they’d recommend Adobe as a great place to work, a 10% increase in the number who say they receive ongoing feedback that helps their performance, and a 5% increase in the number who say their managers are open to receiving feedback from them.
