How to escalate issues to the HPInc or HPE CEO offices  (Updated May 30, 2021.) 


HP Breakup. On Nov 1, 2015, the Hewlett-Packard Company was renamed HP Inc. and a new, independent company -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (no hyphen; singular; green-rectangle logo) -- was spun out. Portions of HPE were later spun out into DXC and Micro Focus, which have spun out other companies. Details: HP Breakup  Note: HP Labs is part of HP Inc. -- but Hewlett Packard Labs (no hyphen) is part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

HPInc is the legal successor to the companies acquired by the Hewlett-Packard Company before the company was split into HPInc and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE.) Responsibility for any commitments to former employees of Autonomy, Compaq, Digital, EDS, Tandem, etc. remain with HPInc -- regardless of whether the employee's last business unit ended up in HPInc or HPE. This includes employment verification and any retiree health coverage, pension, 401(k), etc. plans. HPE is responsible for any commitments to former employees of companies acquired by HPE, such as Cray, Nimble, etc. (About the HP Breakup)

Which HP-related companies am I a retiree or former employee of? (Not always obvious.) Given HP's complex history of acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs, the company or companies that you are legally a former employee of may not be obvious. If any doubt, check here: Which Company
