How Pluralsight changed the way Tesco's IT team learn on the job

Scott Carey | June 28, 2016
IT teams are adopting Pluralsight behind the backs of upper management. Why?

Fairless admits that the usage of the tool has levelled-off a little since implementation though, especially in the less tech-focused roles. "Usage of the tool dropped off, particularly with non-engineers," he says.

Tesco's solution has been quite a traditional one, namely refreshing the team's awareness of the tool. "We have worked with Pluralsight to regain the momentum and bring it to the front of people's minds by hosting lunch and learn sessions," Fairless said.

Changing learning habits

Wragg says that organisations are moving away from traditional ways of learning. His job is to help organisations "adapt to a culture of continuous learning".

"We have developed content in such a way that they can find the subject they need, do some learning for thirty minutes and solve a problem, all while they are working," he says.

"Companies like Tesco moving away from structured learning and sticking someone in a classroom. The idea that people sitting at their desktop learning, when they should be working, goes out the window. People use Google if they are stuck with a problem. IT simply go into Pluralsight.

"Companies are recognising that's how people are working now. Learning is not separate."


Pluralsight is available to individuals and for organisations. The enterprise deployment includes analytics, single sign on and licence management. For individuals it is $299 (£209) a year and $499 (£348) for premium, which has offline viewing, learning checks and completion certificates.
