Report the death of a former employee  (Updated March 23, 2018.)  Questions or comments to: info@hpalumni.org

Please note that the HP Alumni Association is an independent volunteer group of former employees -- not endorsed or supported by the company. You must contact the various HP-related companies that the person worked for.

Given HP's complex history of  acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs, the company that a person was a former employee of may not be obvious. On November 1, 2015, the Hewlett-Packard Company was renamed HP Inc. and spun off a new independent company -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (no hyphen; singular.) Portions of Hewlett Packard Enterprise were subsequently spun off into DXC and Micro Focus. HP Breakup-related issues: HP Breakup

Key principles:

- Former employee of which company? Depends on which company's payroll they were on at the time they left Hewlett-Packard, HP Inc, or Hewlett Packard Enterprise. (Does not depend on whether their last business unit subsequently ended up in HPI or HPE in the HP Breakup.) If the person transitioned to DXC or Micro Focus, it is treated as though they left HPE to join another company.
