“Book By Atos Consulting’s Olivier Vassal Wins Award”
Paris, 12 October 2006
Atos Consulting, Atos Origin's specialized consulting business, has announced that Olivier Vassal has won the 2006 Mutations & Travail award for his book Crise du sens, Défis du Management, published by Village Mondial.
The Mutations & Travail award was created ten years ago to recognize authors who write about changes in the workplace. This year's panel, led by Monoprix CEO Bernardo Sanchez, included 11 other corporate executives from such companies as EDF, AXA, Syntec, Thales and GDF, as well as journalists from Mensuel Management and professors from the Sorbonne.
Olivier Vassal is a member of Atos Consulting France's executive committee, in charge of the Industry, Service and Retailing business. He also leads the company's European skills center dedicated to human resources and change management. Trained as an agronomist, Vassal first worked as a researcher before pursuing a career in management and strategy consulting.
His no-holds-barred view of the corporate world – its management, weaknesses and search for meaning – gives us a real-world vision, in which each reader can recognize his or her own concerns.
“Everyone knows that the workplace and organizations have undergone a radical transformation over the past twenty years. It's one thing to identify these changes, but it's another to determine their causes and effects. People do not seem to be fully aware of how work has intensified, nor has there been any effective response to this trend. In most companies, the real work is not always understood as it should be.” Excerpt from Olivier Vassal's Crise du sens, Défis du Management.
