At Adobe, we don’t just recognize what you accomplish; we celebrate how you do it. Our values of Genuine, Exceptional, Innovative, and Involved underpin our culture and how we work. It’s a core part of our DNA that started with our Founders John Warnock and Chuck Geschke.
In fact, we created an award in honor of our Founders that recognizes employees who make the greatest impact on our business, while exemplifying our values. It’s the highest form of recognition we have Adobe and our employees determine who receives it.
Today I had the pleasure of announcing our 10 global Founders’ Award honorees at our company meeting. They range from a principal scientist in Boston who is redefining the digital imaging industry, to a solution consultant in Amsterdam whose passion for Adobe products is infectious, to a manager in Noida, India who is known for his ability to inspire his team. They have vastly different roles, but they all make Adobe a great company and a great place to work.
As we near our 30th anniversary in December, it makes us proud to see employees like this who carry on Chuck and John’s vision for building an innovative company with a strong sense of values. Meet this year’s Founders’ Award recipients in this video:
When John Warnock and Chuck Geschke founded Adobe in 1982, they wanted to build a company that was technologically innovative and prosperous. They also wanted to create a workplace based on honesty, trust, and a belief in treating others with respect. It sounds simple, yet it’s extremely rare in our hyper-competitive industry and fast-paced times.
With this in mind, the Adobe Founders’ Award was created in 2001 and has become one of Adobe’s most prestigious global recognition programs. Today I had the honor of recognizing this year’s Founders’ Award recipients at our all-employee meeting — eight incredible employees who consistently exemplify Adobe’s core values of Genuine, Exceptional, Innovative and Involved throughout the year and have made a significant contribution/impact to the company.
What’s most exciting about this award is that it’s peer-nominated – employees across all organizations, geographies and levels are encouraged to recognize the importance of our values and beliefs, and reward individuals who exemplify those values.
The Founders’ Awards are a great reminder of the talented, dedicated people who choose to work at Adobe. We’re looking for more people like our Founders’ Award recipients to join us.
