HPE Wins Global Grand Prize for Innovation and Honored By Civic 50 for Community-Mindedness D71_4067.JPG

This week, HPE took home two awards that recognized the company’s innovative initiatives and its ongoing efforts in the community. On Monday, HPE won the Global Grand Prize for Innovation at the ISPIM Innovation Conference in Vienna for the Living Progress Challenge, and on Wednesday, Civic 50 announced that HPE is on its list of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States.


Earlier this year, HPE was selected as one of four finalists for the ISPIM Grand Prize by a panel of innovation leaders and experts. The award was open to all companies and non-profits who showcased initiatives that have significantly improved their innovation performance. On Monday, Chris Wellise (Sr Director, Sustainability and Social Impact) presented the Living Progress Challenge at the ISPIM Innovation Conference in Vienna in front of 14 judges and 400 voting audience members, beating out Fraunhofer, GE, and IBM to win the Global Grand Prize for Innovation.

Rebecca Wang (Sr Manager, Community Engagement) will be receiving the award at their annual Conference on Volunteering and Service in Seattle on behalf of the HPE Gives program.

Our continued focus on innovation and corporate citizenship ensures HPE remains a trusted partner for our customers, allowing them to accelerate their digital transformations while reducing costs, negative impacts, and time to value.

Congratulations to everyone involved with these initiatives.
