Who are HP’s competitors?
The consumer computing market is highly competitive. Companies like Dell, Lenovo and even Apple are in heated competition with HP, offering many of the same products at similar price points.
Like many companies, HP is no stranger to controversies, including the scandal around former CEO Mark Hurd who resigned in 2010. Hurd was accused of sexual harassment, and while the subsequent investigation found that he had not violated the company’s sexual harassment policy, he was forced to step down after it revealed a number of false expenses claims that broke HP’s code of business.
HP has also been criticised for its environmental policies, specifically the production of electronic waste. To protect its reputation, HP set targets to reduce its environmental impact, including a commitment to using 100% renewable energy by 2035 and a goal of a 75% reduction in single-use plastic in packaging by 2025.
