We’re all looking to make a difference during this time of crisis, from small acts of kindness to big gestures of generosity. While individuals find ways to help in their community, big businesses like Hewlett Packard Enterprise are making some strategic decisions to positively impact the community as well.
As part of a coronavirus relief package, HPE has suspended revenue thresholds for both its HPE and Aruba Partner Ready channel programs. This will allow partners to stay at the same level in the two Partner Ready programs for 2021. In addition, they are providing financial relief to distributors. These changes are aimed at helping partners get through the pandemic in good financial shape.
“HPE is taking into consideration that there will be a lot of bumps and bruises,” says CPP Associates Director, Paul O’Dell. “The economy is very unsteady.”
HPE continues to be a company that does right by its customers, partners and employees, according to Paul, an HPE alum. “Some other companies out there don’t operate that way, but HPE always steps up and does the right thing. I appreciate HPE and Aruba showing a steady hand and continuing to provide support for its partners.”
