One of the greatest joys in recruiting is the feeling of making an impact in someone’s life by providing them with a great career. In my opinion, that same feeling of pride and impact is doubled when that new hire is a military veteran. At HP, we’ve made it a company-wide initiative to work harder at hiring veterans.
Since launching a dedicated, focused effort in attracting and hiring military veterans this time last year we have experienced great strides! We’ve accomplished a number of tremendous things in a short time and continue to drive forward to hire military veterans.
Since 1987 when we began recycling hardware, HP has recovered over 2.3 billion pounds of products for reuse and recycling.
