Reinventing HP

The core of HP is innovation. It's in our technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere. It's in our DNA. It's in our product lines, and it's in how we deliver to our customers. Our focus is to create an agile organization that outperforms the market. We do this by making HP an inclusive environment where diverse, bright talent comes, thrives, and continuously innovates. Our strategy encompasses all aspects of the employee experience. It is rooted in our culture, the HP Way, and grounded in our belief that diversity drives innovation and positive business outcomes.

Creating technology that advances Lives and Businesses

APJ is one of our key growth-drivers for HP. The region is growing quickly -and with profound impact. APJ is set to experience the: fastest growth in affluent households, the largest increase in young members of the workforce, and the highest outlook for GDP growth. The opportunities that we see are underpinned by several megatrends defining our future:

  • Rapid Urbanization: By 2040, there will be 50 megacities -many in South East Asia, China and India. With 1.1 billion people, SEA-K is home to the third largest global population. 70% of these people are under the age of 40.

  • Changing Demographics: We see a rise in silver spenders and in millennials, who currently make up 25% of our region's workforce.

  • Hyper-Globalization: APJ now plays a greater role in the global economy. This leads to opportunities (faster innovation) and risks (cyber-security).

  • Rapid Technological Developments: By 2050, nearly 5 billion people will access the internet -many through a mobile device.

For HP, this change equals opportunity. Each megatrend allows us to accelerate, innovate and go faster.

Cultivating a growth mindset

  • Through these new approaches, they can better influence and deliver value to our customers and partners.

Managing and developing our talent - We want people to join HP and then spend their careers growing and evolving with us. That means we must be intentional about the opportunities we create.

  • A career of opportunities:

    • We built career rotations into the talent management mix for all employees, from graduates up to executives.

    • We empower our employees to think strategically and creatively about how their own individual contributions fit within our larger organization and goals.

Sustainable Impact is at the heart of our reinvention journey-fueling our innovation, growth and strengthening our business for the long term. HP is committed to driving sustainable Impact across three pillars: Planet, People and Community.

  • People - In Singapore, HP has enabled learning through technology with its HP Make IT Green Campaign through print creativity and learning for 63,000 students from 24 schools. The participating students had to create a sketch of the Mech Robot, used to destroy the E-waste Monster, a mascot which represented the e-waste issue in Singapore. The winning sketches were then made into trophies and awarded to the winners. HP Singapore also supports the Micro:bit Innovation Explorer and Micro:bit Robotics STEM programmes in the local community.

  • Planet - We integrate sustainability into our business strategy and believe that environmental impact across our value chains is the first step towards taking meaningful action. Original HP supplies are designed with the environment in mind - from efficient design and packaging to the free HP Planet Partners programme that helps customers recycle Original HP cartridges. All HP ink and toner cartridges that you return to HP Planet Partners go through a multiphase, "closed loop" recycling process where materials are separated and refined for use as raw material in new Original HP Ink and toner cartridges and everyday products.

  • Community - At HP, our mission is to engineer experiences that amaze; our group has taken that philosophy and imbedded into it the very core of how we operate. Over the last twelve months, we have initiated programs and sourced company volunteers for over 35 different events. Some of our events include: Rise Against Hunger, 40 Days of Doing Good, Hour of Code, E-Payment Learning Journey for Seniors, Silver It Fest, among many others.
