IT services company Atos Origin SA has outsourced its training administration to BroadSkill, best known as a supplier of freelance IT trainers. BroadSkill will deal with requests for training from within Atos, and source this from the service company's preferred training suppliers. "We expect it to save us money and provide a superior service to both staff and management," said Marie-Pierre Gouaux, learning and development manager at Atos. BroadSkill will run the training administration from its base in Cheshire, using Enterprise Platform software. "It may look like a departure from our normal business, but it builds on our experience and resources in managing large training operations," said Stephen Fletcher, managing director of BroadSkill.
