About Social Innovation
Social innovation at HP centers on the belief that the same passion, energy, and culture of innovation that make HP a successful company can also be used to make a profound and positive social impact in the world.
At HP, we believe that corporate success and social welfare are interdependent. As the largest technology company in the world, we're in a unique position to use our global reach to serve billions, improving quality of life, revolutionizing how businesses operate, and strengthening communities worldwide. We aim to enrich society and drive sustainable economic growth by giving people and businesses innovative ways to be more creative, productive, and successful through the power of information.
Solving tough, complex problems demands fresh thinking and diverse perspectives. Our strategy is to bring together wide-ranging experts across borders, industries, and institutions, collaborating to explore the root causes of key challenges and pioneer solutions that can be scaled globally.
Our approach to corporate responsibility is an integrated part of HP's overall business strategy, helping us create long-term value that will benefit customers, shareholders, consumers, and our communities. The innovations driven through our social innovation program broaden our understanding and perspective on customer needs, creating a virtuous cycle of business development.
We take a focused approach to social innovation, addressing the following areas: education, entrepreneurship, health, environment and community involvement.
Education is deeply interconnected with economic prosperity and is a cornerstone to social progress. HP is working with global leaders on systemic solutions—creative approaches to curricula, teaching, and assessment that take full advantage of technology.
Inspiring and nurturing entrepreneurs is vital to economic growth and innovation. But while many have ideas and ambition, they lack the business and technology skills for success. HP is focusing our efforts on filling that gap with training programs that target young people, aspiring entrepreneurs, and small business owners.
Healthcare offers profound and far-reaching opportunities for social innovation. Millions worldwide go without basic services, and millions more are at risk because of inefficient health systems and inconsistent quality of care. HP is collaborating with leading health authorities to reinvent processes, modernize systems, and develop solutions that dramatically expand access, improve care, and save lives.
At HP, we know we can positively impact the way the world lives and works. Combining the expertise of our employees, technology portfolio, and partnerships, we create environmental solutions that reduce impact and expand opportunities for our customers and communities around the world.
HP encourages employees to use their unique skills, passion, and creativity to help improve the quality of life for as many people as possible. Through pro bono work and volunteering, HP helps employees find ways to contribute their skills where they're needed most. Our people deliver HP's most valuable contribution to social innovation. Our 325,000 employees are among the best and brightest, and they share their expert skills and experience with organizations and communities worldwide to make a real and lasting difference. HP has been a leader in global citizenship for more than six decades. Our commitment to building a better future has never been stronger. We're applying our technology and talents to make the greatest impact today and for generations to come.
