IF YOU'VE EVER wasted your time watching an online video of piano-playing cats or dancing babies, you can thank Adobe for the technology. In an increasingly visual and digital world, the company is behind almost every type of creative content you can think of, from smartphone apps and video games, to films, adverts and digital magazines. Founded in California in 1982, Adobe Systems has continued to grow worldwide, and has 506 employees at its headquarters in Maidenhead and offices in London and Edinburgh. Staff feel they make a valuable contribution to its achievements, giving it an 84% positive score. They are also excited about where Adobe is heading (81%). Adobe has a competitive pay and benefits programme and more than half the workforce earn more than £55,000 a year. Benefits include free private healthcare for employees, their spouses and dependants, and everyone can opt for dental insurance, travel insurance and life assurance. They are happy with their pay and benefits (71%, a top-20 score). Togetherness is important at Adobe. The UK workforce comes together annually, and throughout the year there are several health, wellness and team-building events, across all sites in this country, including a family fun day at the Maidenhead office. Staff say they are proud to be part of the firm (84%). When engagement surveys found that people felt communication with senior leaders was not frequent or open enough, the company implemented meetings with employees at all UK sites invited to take part. Rather than annual appraisals, managers hold regular conversations with their teams, discussing expectations, development and performance, and they encourage everyone to contribute their ideas throughout the year. Staff say managers share important information with them (77%) and agree that they are spoken to honestly and openly (80%). Almost a third of employees participate in charitable fundraising activities, and Adobe matches any sum raised, to the value of $10,000, for each full-time staff member a year. In the past year, £30,000 was raised for the company's nominated charity, Action For Children. Staff agree that Adobe makes a positive difference to the world (72%). www.adobe.com/UK

Adobe has a unique 'KickBox Innovation Workshop' programme that gives employees free reign to bring an idea to life. KickBox is a new approach for empowering employees to innovate inside an enterprise. KickBox is a way of innovating. The KickBox Workshop teaches it in fast-paced, hands-on fashion. Employees are given a red box. Inside is everything they need to become an Adobe Innovator including $1,000 on a pre-paid credit card with a step-by-step process to originate an innovative new concept and then use that money to validate the concept. No proposal, no committees, no approval. You just do it. KickBox is not limited to one idea. Employees learn techniques and gain skills that will be useful throughout their career.

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Adobe's reward philosophy is to provide market-competitive rewards allowing them to attract and retain great talent and to differentiate based on exceptional company and individual performance. They provide competitive compensation and benefits programmes as appropriate in each country in which they do business. A critical part of the integrated benefits offering, is their relationship with their UK health insurance provider, PruHealth. In addition to providing market leading medical insurance in the unfortunate event that their employees fall ill, a key part of PruHealth's partnership with Adobe is their focus on how they can make it cheaper and easier for their members to lead a healthy lifestyle, and earn some great rewards by doing so. Their integrated wellness programme, Vitality, provides members with significant discounts with leading gyms, health screening centres, bike retailers and entertainment groups, as well as paying non-smokers cash back directly into their bank accounts. Adobe and PruHealth recognise that many employees never use their Private Medical Insurance, meaning it can often be seen as a cost to you as an employee, rather than a benefit. PruHealth's approach to integrated wellness ensures first class medical insurance provision to those who need to claim, but also provide tangible benefits to those who don't, meaning that everyone can now take advantage of their cover.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
