Software giant Adobe today 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 United States, and had committed to reach pay parity in India by early 2018.

Over the last year, Adobe undertook a review of its job structure and analysed its compensation practices. It 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.

“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”.
