Aeon connects communities and goes retro in Beeston

Colleagues in Atos Beeston office were treated to a trip down memory lane with the recent Retro Computer event on Thursday 21 March. Hosted by members from Aeon – the multi-generational network – the nostalgic day was a success with all colleagues, young and experienced, giving them the opportunity to connect.

The event featured old computers, consoles and games from Leicester’s Retro Computer Museum (RCM) – a charity dedicated to preserving and showcasing the history of computer systems and game consoles from the 1960s onwards. The prized collection was transported from the museum to our office, where Atos colleagues were invited to enjoy them. The team is planning to extend the events to more Atos UK&I offices, with the next one being held in Birmingham!

Ollie Bitowt, Aeon Chair commented: “Revisiting cherished childhood memories, and the joy in seeing old games that defined a generation, provided a real sense of nostalgia for all. Whether or not colleagues had experienced the games and consoles before, playing them captured everyone’s imagination, uniting the different generations we have within Atos.”
