Hewlett Packard Enterprise on career paths and innovation

In conversation with Saket Swadesh of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Minaxi Indra of upGrad for Business, we unlock key takeaways on designing impactful learning programs that meet the twin needs of talent retention and upskilling to unlock innovation.


Talent retention remains a critical challenge for organisations, but when coupled with the reduced tenure of skill sets, the answer is to invest in the continual career progression of your employees. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is at a critical juncture of transformation as they become a service-based company, where talent retention is even more important. Given upGrad for Business’ expertise in the EdTech domain and its impactful partnerships with top-notch universities, it was the partner of choice for HPE as it launched its Early Career High Potential Program. This program strategically met employees' aspirations by accelerating their careers with certifications from top-tier universities. 

Moreover, it created a win-win situation for HPE because they could also capitalise on their skill sets, increase talent retention and open up new opportunities for growth and innovation. Workforce transformation is critical to reducing skills obsolescence, and we deep-dive into this in our exclusive, one-of-a-kind multimedia flipbook in partnership with upGrad for Business, titled Amplifying Growth, Achieving Impact: Customer Success Stories
