Adobe has always pushed the boundaries when it comes to introducing innovative practices to help ensure its global workforce feels supported in every aspect of their jobs. We’ve introduced channels that allow our people to hone their creative spirits, opportunities to enhance and explore new areas of education, and encourage better work-life balance.

Now, as part of the ongoing effort to enrich the lives of our employees both in and outside the workplace, Adobe Australia and New Zealand has announced significant enhancements to our parental leave benefit.

Highlights of Adobe’s enhanced Australia and New Zealand parental leave benefit include:

These leave enhancements reflect a fundamental shift in the ongoing government and enterprise debate about the type and level of support provided for working families. Specifically, these enhancements move away from Maternity and Paternity leave provisions, to an inclusive program that supports Primary and Secondary caregivers, with all employees enjoying equal access to this benefit.

Women comprise 30% of our workforce globally, and in Australia and New Zealand, the percentage is even higher at 36%. This initiative is one aspect of our diversity strategy, making it easier for employees to balance their home commitments with work.

Our employees make the Adobe culture and business a supportive, enriching and successful one. We’re proud that we’re driving significant changes to support working families.
