Health risk assessment

As part of Adobe’s commitment to your wellbeing, we have partnered with Wellness Checkpoint® to create a health risk assessment for you. This comprehensive questionnaire will give you a better understanding of your overall health through its detailed reports and risk ratings. You will then be presented with opportunities to track your healthy lifestyle habits and be provided with the support and resources you need to achieve your goals. The assessment is completely confidential. None of the information you provide will be viewed by anyone without your permission.

Here's how to complete the health risk assessment:

  1. Access Wellness Checkpoint using the launch/access code adobeglobal. Create an account by clicking “Create one” and following the instructions.
  2. Take the assessment, and review your Results at the end. You will see your:

  1. Track your healthy habits via My Plan.
  2. Highlight Cards will direct you to additional resources, including Contact GuidanceResources to initiate wellness coaching. This is a free and confidential benefit.

Flu shots

Because of COVID-19, Adobe will not offer onsite flu shots this year. Instead, you may receive a vaccination for yourself and your family through your usual health care provider. If you do not have insurance or the cost is not covered at 100%, you may be reimbursed through Adobe’s wellness reimbursement program. Adobe-paid temporary and regular employees and their dependants are eligible for reimbursement.

Smoking cessation

The smoking cessation program is a program created to help employees who want to kick the smoking habit. The program follows a model that allows you to work with a coach and learn to use tools to improve your overall health status. It is tailored to your specific needs, providing you the opportunity to work with a health coach over the telephone. Your coach can give you the support you need to stay motivated. This process will help you make lasting changes by clarifying your priorities and motivators while helping you set goals and figure out strategies to help you stay tobacco-free.

By committing to the program, you will be able to meet or exceed your set goals and eventually be able to maintain the changes on your own.

How to get started

Go to the GuidanceResources website to find the contact information for your location.

  1. Click on the Register tab, and enter Adobe’s web ID: Adobe.
  2. Select your country, and follow the prompts to create a username and password.

LifeDojo

We know small changes lead to big results, and that’s why Adobe employees love LifeDojo, a wellbeing app that allows you to design your own program based on your personal goals and interests. LifeDojo lets you pick from 30 habits to focus on, choose your own life coach and get smarter about how you approach wellbeing with interesting articles and videos. Health changes do not have to be difficult or complex—one simple change is really all it takes to improve wellbeing.

One of the best ways to increase the likelihood that you’ll stick to a health goal is to have the support of another person to keep you accountable and share the experience with, which is why you can now invite one person in your family or household to join LifeDojo at no cost. Choose your habit. Choose your goal. Make your change.
