WASHINGTON, DC – Titan Alpha, a joint venture between Prometheus Federal Services (PFS) and Atlas Research, was awarded a task order to support Veterans Health Administration (VHA) efforts to transform the Employee Education Services (EES) program office into a state-of-the-art learning organization.

“We are honored to bring our experience to VHA’s current and post-pandemic learning environment,” said Atlas Research Manager Lisa Collins. “In addition to providing recommendations for training delivery models, the plan will serve as a multi-year roadmap with activities that promote employee engagement and measurement techniques to ensure success of the transformation efforts.”
