“Why are we here? I think many people assume, wrongly, that a company exists solely to make money... We have to go deeper and find the real reason for our being” –Dave Packard, 1960
From the start, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard baked a commitment to corporate citizenship into the DNA of our company—a commitment which has guided our strategy over the decades to the benefit of our company, our customers, and society at large. It’s one of the reasons I chose to work for Hewlett Packard, and now Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Under the leadership of our CEO, Antonio Neri, HPE has reaffirmed these roots and sparked a cultural transformation that will lead us into the future as a purpose-driven company. Today, my pride in HPE is heightened as HPE is recognized as the industry leader1 on the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
On a personal level, I am particularly proud to see HPE achieve a perfect score of 100 for Human Capital Development. Over the past two years, our leadership has been dedicated to making HPE the best place to work for our employees by investing in our culture and careers and listening to our workforce. In doing so, we have also invested in the success of our business. HPE has transformed our employee experience, providing grants to hundreds of employees working towards educational degrees, nurturing professional development opportunities, and offering world-class benefits which we call “Work That Fits Your Life”.
It’s a privilege to work for a company committed to applying technological innovation to advance the way people live and work. As our CEO, Antonio Neri, says: “we believe that technology’s greatest promise lies in the good we can do and the challenges we can overcome, together”. Although we recognize there is much more work to do to propel our entire industry towards a more sustainable, digital world, we are honored to be recognized for our leadership on the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
