Adobe Announces New Accessibility Principles And Employee Wellbeing Initiatives At Adobe For All Days 2023

San Jose, CA, USA - Feb 17, 2020: Adobe Headquarters in San Jose, California.

Adobe has announced new Accessibility Principles and wellbeing initiatives to mark the commencement of Adobe for All Days in Australia and New Zealand, a global company-wide event to celebrate the uniqueness of Adobe’s people, product and purpose each year.

Drawing on the vision of founders Charles Geske and John Warnock, Adobe has long forged a strong legacy of trust and a community of belonging by prioritising employee wellbeing, nurturing lasting community partnerships, and remaining a thoughtful and responsible technology leader. In today’s increasingly divided world, this work is not only nuanced and challenging, but there is also always more to be done as Adobe continues to devote itself to evolving and upholding its commitment to Adobe for All.

The Adobe for All Days theme this year is “Let’s Belong Together,” an invitation for its community to unite in a shared understanding of the collective responsibility they each carry to develop a more equitable workplace. Each region hosts a one-day experience as part of Adobe for All Days featuring guest speakers, employee storytellers, breakout sessions, and in-person fairs.

 

Announcing New Adobe Accessibility Principles

Adobe for All endeavours to constantly move the needle forward towards a more diverse and inclusive world, an extension of Adobe’s commitment to developing inclusive digital products and services that allow more than one billion people with disabilities globally to express their creativity.

Today, Adobe reaffirms its commitment to accessibility with the launch of new Adobe Accessibility Principles. Rooted in Partnership, Transparency and Innovation, the new principles will help Adobe in making purposeful decisions about its products and services to ensure that they are innovating responsibly.

The company has also formed an Adobe Accessibility Board to expand its perspectives and build a global accessibility vision that prepares them for the future. The board consists of Adobe leaders from diverse functional backgrounds, experiences, and roles, who will lend their expertise to shape their accessibility strategy, hold them accountable on their progress and help them identify areas where they can improve.

 

Prioritising Employee Wellbeing

Adobe is committed to providing its employees with the support and resources they need to thrive, both personally and professionally. Adobe recognises that ensuring the team’s collective wellbeing must be at the forefront of how it manages teams, distribute work, and create a supportive culture. By supporting employee wellbeing, Adobe is creating a more productive and engaged workforce, where employees can do their best work and share in the company’s overall success.

Beginning next year, Adobe will expand the scope of the Wellness Reimbursement Program to allow employees to use the benefit towards costs related to financial wellbeing, pet care, and emergency preparedness. With the expanded employee assistance program, Adobe will cover the cost of 12 therapy sessions (up from 10) for employees and their eligible family members.
