One vision – thousands of viewpoints: Hewlett Packard 's rallying cry – the motto by which it carries on its corporate vision and mission.
Hewlett Packard grew out of a garage project in 1939 when Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, classmates at the Stanford University, built an audio oscillator that no sooner started a technology revolution. Two diverse minds with one dream for a better tomorrow.
With that, the company has continued to grow with its community of diverse minds working together to spearhead technology breakthroughs. It is the diversity in the way they think, look for solutions from different perspectives, that has strengthened Hewlett Packard. It believes that its power spring from its workforce coming from different nations, cultures, ethnics, lifestyles, generations, backgrounds and skills.
Diversity in fact is one of Hewlett Packard's strongest business tools. Unity in diversity is its strength as its people “apply inspired thinking and fresh perspectives to challenges big and small: Whether it’s the world’s most powerful supercomputer or a scientific pocket calculator, our solutions empower our customers all over the world.”
Diversity is what spurs Hewlett Packard 'from convention to invention.' From the numerous awards the company has received from notable publications and organizations, Hewlett Packard indeed has shown what it takes to create a world of difference in the way people live today.
Hewlett Packard attracts talents from around the globe as it recognizes contributions its people provide because it cares to listen to their ideas: “And we listen—because inspired thinking can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime. Inspired thinking can connect the world.”
Differences truly can make people work together, on the wings of innovation, and unite the company. Ultimately, Hewlett Packard unites the world.
