HP people participate in our global social innovation programs in education and
health, focused on making a fundamental difference in critical social issues, and they also contribute through local activities around the world.
Many HP employees and retirees worldwide choose to give their skills and time through volunteering or fundraising, to support their local communities and contribute to key national and global social challenges. Our people participate in mentoring programs, support students and educators in schools and higher education, encourage and coach young entrepreneurs, provide pro bono services in disadvantaged communities, aid the victims of natural disasters – and much more.
HP’s support for our people
As part of HP’s commitment to making a difference in the communities and the world where we live and work, every HP employee in the US has the opportunity to use 4 hours per month in work time to make a contribution through volunteering. A similar principle exists in other countries across HP operations.
In critical social areas, HP backs employee volunteering efforts by a further donation of pro bono services, technology or funding donations – wherever it is most needed.
Highly-skilled volunteering, pro bono services
Many HP employees lend their technology, legal, marketing and other expertise to advance the work of schools, healthcare providers, nonprofit organizations and under-served communities.
For example, hundreds of members of our global HP Legal organization
provide pro bono legal services in key social-need areas. Other HP employees
serve as advisors, coaches and judges in programs for young students and
entrepreneurs, such as the
HP Responsible Business Competition, which we host annually in collaboration with Junior Achievement - Young Enterprise (JA-YE).
HP employees and retirees often join together to support organizations and causes dedicated to enriching local communities.
