HP’s Conway facility in Arkansas will add 200 new jobs next year, the company announced today.
“These new employees will fill important technical roles in software engineering, business analysis and management in support of HP’s growing government and commercial healthcare business across the United States,” said John Herzog, Hewlett-Packard Account Executive.
Hewlett-Packard (IW 1000/28) cited the presence of three colleges and universities, high-quality workforce and hundreds of existing HP employees working locally as the key drivers for the project. The “Industry Development Center” is a centralized group of highly skilled HP staff that builds, enhances and implements HP’s healthcare industry solutions for many commercial and state clients.
“The skill level of these jobs, the salaries and the field of expertise all prove that Arkansas’s workforce can compete for high-quality jobs and adjust to the changing demands of HP’s market,” said Governor Mike Beebe.
