Report the death of a former employee  (Updated Dec 31, 2019.)  Questions or comments to: info@hpalumni.org

Please note that the HP Alumni Association is an independent volunteer group of former employees. Not officially endorsed or supported by any 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? HP Inc or Hewlett Packard Enterprise? Depends on which company's payroll they were on at the time they left. (Does not depend on where their last business unit ended up after they left.) If their business unit was moved to DXC or Micro Focus, it is treated as though they left HPE to join another company.
