2020: The Longest Year Was Also An Award-Winning Year For HP
In our journey to imagine the future and make it happen, we’re often recognized as a sustainability leader and a workplace where people come to thrive.
2020 was going to be about change for HP well before the escalation of COVID-19. We were already rethinking how we work and do business, transforming from within. When certain transitions were set to hyperdrive due to external forces, we were straight ahead at full speed, working overtime to create new products and services designed to help combat the pandemic while supporting employees, partners, and customers alike.
We rose to the challenge, united behind our shared vision, and continued to deliver. Our reputation as an award-winner company just got even stronger in 2020. We didn’t stumble—if anything, we gained momentum against all odds.
The awards below represent the HP Way in action: what we value, how we work, and how we lead. Product awards recognize what we make, but the awards on this page honor how we attract, develop, and support world-class talent. Thanks to all of our employees for making all of this possible. We earned these together.
