From day one, HP broke new ground by refusing to accept the status quo. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard created more than an audio oscillator in their Palo Alto garage. They built a way of doing business—the HP Way. What started in Bill and Dave’s garage still thrives today. We continue to change the world with our products, our people, and our business –

HP’s innovation springs from a team of individuals, each collaborating and contributing their own perspectives, knowledge, and experience to advance the way the world works and lives. From our earliest days, we’ve recognized that drawing from diverse points of view improves our products and services—and our company as a whole. Talent is our only criteria. We’re reinventing the standard for diversity and inclusion—in how we operate as a company and impact society. Diversity is embedded in all we do, and every HP employee at every level plays a part. By valuing differences—whether race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, ability, military status, religion, generation, sexual orientation, or views—we engage top industry talent to drive our company’s long-term success.
As a company with a global manufacturing footprint, we place sustainability at the center of our business. We do it first and foremost for the wellbeing of our customers and the planet. And we do it to ensure the longevity of our products. Across the board, whether it be through challenging our agencies and suppliers to be more diverse, sponsoring refugee education in the Middle East, or creating a circular economy in Haiti, we recognize our influence and seek to use it wisely.
"My job is literally to crack, crush, and otherwise destroy our products. Why? Because from there, we make them even better. It’s this constant drive for improvement that fuels me, both in and out of work. From woodworking to fire breathing, I’m always taking on new personal challenges—and I bring this spirit to HP as I test our products the same way I test myself." - Guillermo Gomez Reliability Engineer at HP Inc. "At HP, we’ve created a culture where everyone feels comfortable bringing their whole self to work. It’s allowed me to focus and advance from sales representative to managing director without the fear of being judged or stereotyped." - Ifeyinwa Afe Managing Director - West, Central Africa at HP
