Hewlett Packard Enterprises: Best Governance Team US 2021

Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) was established in late 2015 following its separation from Hewlett-Packard Company. It has evolved into a global, edge-to-cloud Platform-as-a-Service company that specialises in transformative business solutions. It develops software and IT infrastructure with an eye for sustainability and efficiency, enabling clients to increase productivity while keeping costs and environmental impacts low. It promotes circular economies as an avenue to decouple financial growth from the consumption of raw materials. The company recently released its fourth annual Living Progress report, which details how HPE innovates to meet future tech demands as well as increasingly ambitious ESG objectives. Some of the highlights from the 2019 report include $21m in community donations and a million hours of employee volunteerism over the past five years. The company considers its people as its greatest asset, for their passion and commitment drives HPE innovation and growth. It has attracted one of the most skilled — and diverse — teams in the industry. Over half of the board identifies with one or more diverse groups, and the company continues to take action to further inclusion and equity. In addition to HPE’s facilitator-led training programme for inclusive leadership, it will launch an integrated advocacy programme and a global inclusion and diversity council. It supports scholarships at historically black colleges and universities, contributes to racial justice grants and offers to match employees’ charity donations. HPE strives to be a force for good, and the CFI.co judges recognise its steadfast progress with the 2021 award for Best Governance Team (US).
