5 Reasons You Should Join HP

By: Sharon Sun

 

“What is the main reason why do YOU think I should join HP?” Picture 1.jpg

 

This was the question that caught me off guard from an interview last week. And even though I could´ve started explaining that we are one of the world´s largest technology companies, ranked 15 in the Fortune 500 list… I decided to give him the reasons why I joined HP. But I couldn´t just respond with one answer, it was like asking me to choose which of my children I loved the most!

 

So I decided to tell him my top 5.

 

From my personal perspective, these are five reasons why you should join HP:

 

1) Our people … Our Culture

 

I´ll be completely honest, where I come from, HP´s culture is legendary. This is a place where all our people come together to make a difference and inspire others. It doesn´t matter what business unit you belong to, if you need assistance with any issue, you will have more than a pair of hands to help you out. You are sure to find in each cafeteria, online meeting or virtual conference room an intergenerational exchange of ideas, whether it´s from a senior member or an intern, all suggestions are taken in.

 

2) We develop you to grow

 

HP believes in the power of people, as collaborators, we are given all the tools necessary through trainings, coaching programs and online courses, to not only master your current role but, to develop your career in the direction you want it to go. I am amazed by our new reverse mentoring program, where our senior managers and VPs get coached on how to use the new trends such as social media and new technologies, by recent graduate employees. At HP I´ve learned that there are no limits to learning.

 

3) When we say MAKE IT MATTER… we mean it!

 

I love how HP supports any initiative to make a difference, not only in our community but in different places around the globe. This year we were able to participate in with an extraordinary organization named KIVA, where HP gave each employee $25 to lend funds to a borrower who wants to get a head in their business that could be anywhere in the world. This is much more than just lending money, we are sending a message… we believe in you, we know you can do it.

I have also been lucky to participate teaching children, building parks, reaching out to soon to be professionals reassuring that they can make a difference in their life, they too can Make It Matter.

 

4) The best tools available

 

One of the greatest things about working in a world renowned tech company is that we are always up to date with the technology, we are using the best tools to get our job done! We always have resources available that encourages us to work smarter, not harder.

 

5) Where work and life are actually balanced.

 

HP promotes employee wellness through sports activities, finance and motivational seminars, making sure employees are satisfied in all aspects of their daily life. With flexible schedules and events like “take your child to work day” my children feel proud and motivated to do their best in school so they can work in a “fun company like mommy does”!

 

For all these reasons and more, I can say I am #HPProud, and invite you to our HP Careers page to seek opportunities so you can join our family.
