Agilent spun off from Hewlett-Packard Company in 1999 as part of a corporate realignment that created two separate companies. Its roots date to 1939, when Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started a company that helped shape Silicon Valley and the technology industry. The two founders are renowned for their visionary approach to management (known as the “HP Way”) and for their commitment to making products that contribute to advances in science and technology.
Agilent continues to support the values that made Dave Packard and Bill Hewlett’s company a success: dedication to innovation; trust, respect and teamwork; and uncompromising integrity. Added to these are speed, focus and accountability to meet customer needs and create a culture of performance that draws on the full range of people’s skills and aspirations.
