Diversity at Atos

Here at Atos, diversity and inclusion are embedded in our DNA. With robust programs in place to support our 5 Diversity Dimensions (Gender, Accessibility, LGBT, Generations, and Culture) our 120,000 global employees are encouraged to contribute to our culture of inclusivity. Atos does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity. We hold ourselves to a high standard, because our employees deserve to feel safe, valued, and able to express themselves.

Millennials

Millennials are our fastest growing employee group – we provide you with opportunities to network, present on the latest technologies, and coach one another to accelerate career mobility. As reported by Bloomberg, 46% of the growth in the prime-age labour pool can be attributed to Millennial women, so programs to help them grow are a priority for us here at Atos.

Seasoned Professionals

We value the domain knowledge of our tenured employees and created the 10+ Affinity Group to engage and inform these employees about our programs and learning opportunities. This group was created in response to internal survey comments stating that those with greater than 10 years of working experience want more access to programs, training and mentoring. Vercida (the world's leading diversity and inclusion employer brand platform) recognised this focus and named Atos as a Top 5 Age-Inclusive Company in 2018.

Gender

Our Women Who Succeed program is positioning our top talents for key roles within the company; offering best in class learning, collaboration, and mentoring opportunities to move more Atos women into senior roles. Our global Executive Committee is acting as emissaries to ensure that women have what they need to succeed. Atos North America won the 2018 Brandon Hall Group Bronze Award for our considerable efforts in this space (Brandon Hall Group recognises organisations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, and processes that have achieved measurable results in multiple categories related to human capital management). Vercida also named Atos a Top 10 Employer for Gender in 2018.

Culture

Our Together Network in the UK and Ireland, African-American Affinity Group in North America, and the Veterans Groups in both areas seek to provide opportunities for our employees to connect, learn from one another, and develop programs to benefit their audiences.  Atos was named as a Best Place For Race in 2018 by the Prince’s Trust in the UK. 

LGBT: AtosPride

Our LGBT and Allies groups provide support, guidance, and resources to our employees, and together with senior staff support, are ensuring that our employees view Atos as a safe, inclusive workplace. Atos has partnered with the United Nations and signed the LGBTI Standards of Conduct For Business; and has also signed L’Autre Cercle’s charter in support of their mission is to combat discrimination.  Atos is listed 101 on the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.

Accessibility

One of our most active pillars focused on several key initiatives, the Accessibility Group developed a global policy on Accessibility, are focused on improving the candidate experience from an accessibility perspective, and are partnering with our Learning & Development teams to ensure that all courseware meets the needs of our employees. We’re partnering with local colleges that have programs for neuro-diverse students, as we know that a portion of our technical talents will come from this population in the future.  Neil Milliken, Global Head Of Accessibility, made the Top 10 on Shaw’s Disability Power Top 100 List in 2018.
