Who we are

In a world that is growing and evolving every day, HP creates technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere. HP 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 capturing and drawing from diverse points of view improves our products and services — and our company as a whole.



See what these HP employees say about how their individual viewpoints impact our products, business, and company culture.

Our Current Progress

We’re reinventing the standard for diversity, equity, 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.

HP is committed to fair and equitable pay

At HP, we believe people should be paid for what they do and how they do it, regardless of their gender, race, or other personal characteristics.


To deliver on that commitment, we benchmark and set pay ranges based on market data, and consider factors such as an employee’s role and experience, the location of their job, and their performance.


We also regularly review our compensation practices, both in terms of our overall workforce and individual employees, to ensure our pay is fair and equitable.
