Adobe again named one of the world’s most admired companies

Adobe named one of world's most admired companies.

Over the last four decades, Adobe’s core set of values — focusing on people, purpose and community — have guided the company’s evolution and growth and inspired our now 28,000 employees around the world to make an impact and innovate for the future. Our technologies have made an impact on every aspect of society: from desktop publishing to revolutionizing imaging and design to pioneering electronic documents to advancing animation, gaming and video to leading 3D, digital marketing and commerce.

We’ve accomplished a lot over the last 40 years but we’ve never been more certain that Adobe’s best days are ahead. We have everything it takes to continue our success in the future: massive market opportunities — a proven ability to create and expand categories that transform markets — an expansive product portfolio that serves a growing universe of customers — revolutionary technology platforms that advance our industry leadership and competitive advantage — an expanding ecosystem that delivers even greater value to customers — strong business fundamentals — and the most dedicated and talented employees.

That’s why we’re honored to share that Adobe has been recognized as one of Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” coming in at no. 53 on the top 100 list. In the software category, Adobe ranked no. 2.

To select the top 100 most admired companies, Fortune partnered with a global management consulting firm to survey 3,760 executives, board members and analysts, who were asked various questions around attributes such as innovation, business and financial performance, operations, social responsibility and talent management.

This past year, we celebrated Adobe’s 40th anniversary and we are thrilled that our commitments to people, culture and purpose have earned us respect from our peers, but we know that progress does not stop here. We look forward to continuing to do right by our employees and customers to drive our next decade of growth.
