From the Paper:

"In many companies the first time there is a problem or conflict with an employee that employee is terminated and shown the door. Hewlett Packard does not believe in giving up on its resources at the first sign of trouble. In fact it is a company policy to first try and work with that person and address any issues that may be at the root or foundation of the problem before resorting to termination. Hewlett Packard is a large company and as such has some flexibility in this area. If an employee is displaying unwanted work behaviors the company has a mediator or counselor in place to ascertain what is causing such behaviors. If it is an issue outside of work, such as substance abuse the company has the ability to send that person to rehabilitation and provide support for abstinence. "
