Irving, Texas, July 18, 2017 – Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, hosts a grand opening event on July 18 at its new state-of-the-art building in Irving, Texas, with North America senior leadership and local government officials.
This new central location will facilitate seamless delivery of services to our American customers. Atos vitalizes innovation in the region by combining top experts in Infrastructure and Data Management, Business and Process Solutions, Big Data, Cybersecurity, Unified Communications, and Healthcare industry specialists. The building will house 650 employees dedicated to our customers and their account teams.
“This new building in Dallas is a natural progression of our trajectory in the United States” said Michel-Alain Proch, Group Senior Executive Vice President and CEO North America. “By providing the latest technology to our employees, we want to empower them to achieve firsts in the industry for our customers. To accelerate our expansion, we will continue to recruit top talent in the region.”
Atos will invite customers to the first North American Business Technology and Innovation Center (BTIC) for hands-on experiences with the latest Atos innovations. The BTIC offers customers tangible interactions across the four pillars of the Atos Digital Transformation Factory — Atos Canopy Orchestrated Hybrid Cloud, SAP HANA by Atos, Atos Digital Workplace, and Atos Codex. Our successful delivery in the Cloud for the last Olympic & Paralympic Games will also be displayed.
As a digital company, Atos defined a working environment with state-of-the-art collaboration technology for its employees. Along with the BTIC, the new building offers an open environment with large workspaces, touchscreen interfaces, and wireless presentation tools.
Going hand-in-hand with the building’s technological capabilities are its accessibility and environmental sustainability, two key elements of its design. The building complies with the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and by 2018 it will reduce our regional CO2 emissions by c. 1,400 tons and waste volume by c. -60%.
Putting people first is at the heart of why Atos has been recognized for its employee engagement and wellbeing programs. The American Heart Association recently honored Atos’ employee fitness initiatives; and last year, Atos was recognized as the North American Employee Engagement Company of the Year specifically for its Wellbeing@Work program which fosters wellness alongside career success.
The Irving Mayor, Chamber of Commerce and Atos leaders will host the grand opening event, featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony, tours of the BTIC and campus. Guest speakers include Atos North America President Chad Harris and newly-elected Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer.
“Atos is a significant addition to Irving’s roster of leading national and international corporations,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. “Not only has Atos chosen a stunning new facility, the company will contribute a tremendous depth of experience, opportunity and leadership to our great city. We are proud Atos chose Irving as its North American Regional Headquarters, and we welcome this exceptionally innovative technology company and its employees to their new Irving home.”
