4. How valued do you feel by Hewlett Packard Enterprise?
Even being a few weeks into my apprenticeship scheme in HPE, I always felt valued. The managers make you want to exceed and give you a level of responsibility which feels good. As an apprentice visiting universities and schools it is an amazing experience because it shows that you have done well and they want everybody to see that.

My employer is willing to support me on a lot of things, especially on volunteering etc.
