Future-proofing through HR digital transformation

 Reducing Atos’ time to hire from weeks to days

 10,000 candidate goal


As part of a wider digital transformation programme, Atos needed an organisational skills map to drive greater utilisation across its current workforce and to spot opportunities to re-skill workers. In addition, through the network – Atos were looking to enable greater organisational flexibility and agility.


Atos launched Adepto’s Total Talent platform using a custom built skills taxonomy, that reflected the specialisms of its workforce.

Atos activated the platform inviting workers across the organisation to create a profile, diversifying Atos’ available talent resource.

Hiring managers are now able to find the right people for projects in just a couple of days. Better visibility and access to talent also gave Atos far greater insights into their workforce’s ambitions and interests – better aligning workers to jobs and projects, increasing motivation and quality of output.

The results

Atos have a target to increase their network to 10,000 employees. As a result, the resource assignment lead-time is anticipated to go from (now) weeks to just hours.

One of Atos’ many success stories since activation included finding a highly-specialised and hard-to-find Citrix expert to fulfil a sudden demand within new business. The hiring manager at Atos used Adepto’s search function and found a suitable individual within minutes.

“Adepto have proven themselves to be a highly collaborative partner. They have been very responsive to specific requests and where possible have aligned their development sprints to our pilot programme needs. Users of the platform have been very complimentary about its intuitive nature and its flexibility. Whilst inevitably there have been some teething issues with certain areas of roll out, the Adepto team have been incredibly open in sharing plans for resolution and have always embraced the feedback that we have given to them.”
