First impressions are important. When companies are hiring for new talent, they want to put their best foot forward and show that they are a progressive, innovative company that people want to work for.
Adobe is the digital experience company. Its 26,000 global employees work together to help create the most innovative experiences possible for customers. Employees in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa operate as part of the EMEA region, working together to serve customers in diverse countries. The EMEA Employees Experience Group onboards around 1,000 new hires a year, and it wanted to make sure that its internal onboarding processes reflected the modern digital experiences Adobe creates for its customers.
“Modern digital experiences should be fully digital and paperless, using automation to improve efficiency and personalization to connect with people,” says Yasser Dehen, Talent Operations Manager, EMEA, Adobe. “Our onboarding paperwork still had several manual steps for our team and our new hires. We knew we could improve the process by leaning into digital.”
The EMEA Employee Experience team partnered with the Adobe Acrobat Sign Professional Services team to build a fully digital onboarding workflow using Adobe Acrobat Sign and Microsoft solutions, including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Power Apps, and Microsoft SharePoint.
“The new Adobe Welcome Pack fully digitizes the onboarding paperwork for new hires,” says Amy Wells, Senior Onboarding Success Specialist, EMEA, Adobe. “We give new hires a much more streamlined experience, which leads to faster and more accurate documentation, higher onboarding satisfaction, and a stronger first impression.”
