Open communication is part of our culture. It is important that anyone with a concern can speak up without fear of retaliation, using their preferred method of communication. We offer multiple channels convenient for employees and other stakeholders, such as business partners and customers, to ask questions or report a concern to HP. We also provide stakeholders with information about HP’s programs related to specific human rights issues such as combating forced labor and human trafficking. If there is a concern or issue related to human rights, it is immediately escalated through our Ethics and Compliance office. Additionally, HP established a Human Rights Council in 2017 to coordinate due diligence efforts and mitigate risk at a strategic level.
