HP Inc employee relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

 

Update on employee relief efforts after recent natural disasters
A Story From HP Continuum
Published 10/4/2017


Thanks for your support and concern for HP employees who were impacted by recent natural disasters.

HP is pleased to confirm that all employees in Puerto Rico have been accounted for and are safe.

Our local offices in Aguadilla remain open and we are doing all we can to assist employees in need. An HP shuttle service is now transporting employees from their homes to the site where they can take advantage of onsite childcare, counselling services, and free daily breakfast and lunch. Coca Cola is filling the water tank up weekly with potable water, which is being distributed to employees.

Data connectivity is still very limited at the site, with the majority of the bandwidth being used for site operations - very few employees having access to internet/email. The Global Security team is looking at alternate options to get additional bandwidth to the site. We've also been able to secure priority gas so employees don't have to wait in line at gas stations.

Many of you have asked how we are supporting employees affected by the storm. All HP employees in Puerto Rico who were impacted by Hurricane Maria are eligible to apply for personal grants from the HP Employee Relief Fund (ERF). This fund was created when we established HP Inc. and it aims to help employees in need of financial assistance due to a disaster or personal hardship.

The ERF relies primarily on individual donations. Every contribution helps and when combined with the donations of others, can provide a tax-free grant to help an HP employee facing the unexpected.

If you would like to make a tax-free donation to the HP Employee Relief Fund, you can do so online using a credit card or PayPal by clicking here. If you would like to mail a check, please make your check out to: Emergency Assistance Foundation, Inc. with "For: HP Employee Relief Fund" in the memo or the cover letter and mail to 3713 Pine St., Jacksonville, FL 32205.

We will continue to provide updates on the relief efforts on HP Continuum to keep everyone informed.
