HP hosts a Jobseeker for AccessAbility Day
When Parul from Ability Options approached me about hosting someone with a disability to shadow me for a day in my role, it resonated very well not just with my personal values of inclusion and equality, but also with HPE’s culture of embracing everyone’s differences.
HPE believes that in order to ignite a culture of belonging and inclusion, each of us must be knowledgeable about the topic of Inclusion & Diversity, have a clear understanding about ourselves and others, and develop skills in order to consistently demonstrate HPE’s values in an inclusive way.
My Manager, Vivian Bacci, and HR Lead for Australia and NZ Rob James, where fully supportive of such a wonderful initiative as was our full leadership team to host Raghav as part of AccessAbility Day at the HPE premises.
During the job shadowing, Raghav was given a brief overview of the HPE business and introduced to the various aspects of my daily activities as a Channel Partner Specialist. I thoroughly enjoyed my time hosting Raghav.
Raghav really enjoyed his experience at HP and said “The team at HP have been very friendly, showing me around and telling me about their various roles. This experience has made me want to work in the industry and use my Certificate 4 in IT even more! I really like the spaciousness and neatness of the office and the coffee is great too!
