Adobe announces equal pay for employees across the globe

23 Oct 2018

Adobe announced it has delivered on its commitment to pay parity between women and men globally across nearly 40 countries.

This is a critical milestone in Adobe’s ongoing commitment to providing employees with a workplace that is inclusive, innovative and exceptional.

“Diversity is about valuing the unique life experience that every employee brings to work every day,” said Shantanu Narayen, president and CEO, Adobe.

I’m proud that we’ve taken this important step toward fair recognition of all our people’s contributions—achieving this milestone is fundamental to who we are.”

“Advocating for women in leadership is something I’m passionate about and I’m thrilled that Adobe has achieved pay parity between men and women in Australia and New Zealand, and around the world,” said Suzanne Steele, Managing Director, Adobe Australia and New Zealand.

“When people feel appreciated and included, they can be more creative, innovative and successful. I’m proud to work for a company which values the contribution of all employees, regardless of their gender or background.”

Adobe defines pay parity as ensuring that employees in the same job and location are paid fairly to one another, regardless of their gender or ethnicity.

As a core element of its gender pay parity initiative, the company analysed its employees’ pay within job families and location, and then made a small number of adjustments to employees’ pay based on that review.

These global pay adjustments, including those previously made in the United States and India, impacted less than 5% of Adobe employees and less than 0.2% of global payroll costs.

“We’re proud to continue creating a culture that fairly rewards and recognises the contributions of all our employees across the globe,” said Donna Morris, executive vice president of Customer & Employee Experience, Adobe.

“Adobe is leading the industry by demonstrating that what is good for employees is good for business, and we hope this inspires other companies to embrace this type of equality.”

In December 2017, Adobe announced U.S. gender pay parity, followed by India pay parity in January 2018. In 2016, Adobe announced pay parity between white and non-white employees in the U.S. Adobe is committed to maintaining pay parity through its hiring, acquisition integration and annual pay review processes.
