Holly Mattinson

During Holly’s studies at Lancaster University for an undergraduate BBA Management degree, she undertook a placement year with Atos.

Working as a Change Coordinator for a year in Atos’ Service Management Centre opened her eyes to the incredibly fast paced and exciting world that is the technology and IT industry.

Following the achievement of a first class degree, Holly decided to start her career as a graduate in HR leading on the digital communications campaign for the launch of Atos’ internal mobility programme. Leveraging her desire to learn and understand new tools and platforms in which to collaborate effectively, within a short time frame of her start date, she had designed and built a collaboration space and coordinated a supporting communication plan for the launch. During her time in HR, Holly also progressed into a project based role conducting projects such as the gender pay gap analysis for the company and subsequently driving efficiencies into the process using self taught macros that she built. Leveraging her new found excel skills, Holly also created a pay review modelling template to automatically calculate and illustrate different modelling scenarios.

Holly continued to challenge herself and was able to introduce the use of a desktop app building site as an internal means of information sharing in an interactive and engaging manner. This has since been widely adopted across the company with Holly conducting training sessions with colleagues from across Atos globally. Within her time in HR Holly was also recognised as a Digital Idol for her work.

Following her HR role, Holly became a customer engagement manager, responsible for creating a digital induction portal which has since grown into a global portal. She continuously sought innovative solutions to drive digital into her ways of working including creating an interactive PowerPoint pack as a different way of communicating key messages.

As of September this year, Holly has started a new role as Head of Internal Communications for Atos’ Business Transformation Services division and is seeking out opportunities to drive innovation in digital communications.

Outside of her day job, Holly is an active member of Atos’ diversity networks, leading on the relaunch of the UK&I STEM Network. As part of this initiative, she is part of a team of four launching Atos’ first STEM Challenge this October and as well as supporting the development of a new STEM strategy as part of Atos’ wider social value strategy. This includes supporting the organising of a STEM Innovation event and leading on designing blueprint collateral to support Atos employees in running their own STEM events. Holly also participated in the 2018 Million Makers competition with seven others in aid of The Prince’s Trust, raising an incredible £307,000.
