If you know someone at HP or HPE who is facing possible layoff, considering retirement, or has recently left, send them this link. It has pragmatic advice collected from alumni who have gone through past cycles -- including actions to take in advance, even if you expect to stay. https://www.hpalumni.org/leaving (No membership or login required.)

Discounts on ink and toner no longer available. Employee/retiree discounts still available on almost everything else -- including business products. Member advice: https://www.hpalumni.org/discounts-hp 

Shareholder class action settlement. If you received Micro Focus shares between Sep 1, 2017 and Aug 28, 2019 -- as part of the HPE Software spinoff, or otherwise -- you have a potential claim no matter when you disposed of the MFGP shares -- even if you held them until they were purchased by OpenText earlier in 2023. Very rough estimate of average payout: $0.39 per MFGP ADS -- i.e. $5.30 for every 100 HPE shares owned on Sep 1, 2017. Details, claim deadline, how to claim: Micro Focus Suit
