Adobe achieves gender pay parity in India
In December 2017, Adobe had achieved equal pay in the US and had committed to reach pay parity in India by early 2018
New Delhi: Software giant Adobe on Wednesday said it has achieved gender pay parity in India, closing the wage gap between its male and female employees.
In December 2017, Adobe had achieved equal pay in the US and had committed to reach pay parity in India by early 2018. “India has the second largest employee base for Adobe outside of the US, and we see reaching pay parity between men and women as an important milestone in our commitment towards building a work culture that thrives on equal growth opportunities for all,” said Donna Morris, executive vice president, customer & employee experience, Adobe.
Over the last year, Adobe undertook a review of its job structure and analysed its compensation practices, and made adjustments to its existing people practices, including the use of gender-neutral job descriptions and targeted training to identify unconscious bias, a company release said.
Adobe India has also discontinued the practice of using a candidate’s prior remuneration to determine the starting salary offered, an important step to help counter the gender wage gap that candidates may have experienced in prior jobs. “Despite being one of the world’s fastest growing economies, the gender wage gap in India is a matter of concern and corrective measures to address this have been long overdue,” said Abdul Jaleel, vice president, employee experience, Adobe India.
Jaleel further said, “at Adobe, we believe that employees perform best when put on a level footing and valued equally, and are proud to have achieved our goal of pay parity in India”.
