Utah-based learning platform for IT professionals, Pluralsight, is letting go 20 per cent of its overall workforce. The company’s CEO Aaron Skonnard broke the news of the layoffs in an email.
“As Pluralsight’s co-founder and CEO, I have had to share some difficult news at various points in our company’s history. What I am sharing today is one of the toughest messages that I’ve ever delivered. I’ve spoken to all of you this year about the challenging economic environment we’re operating in and how it has affected our business performance,” said Skonnard.
“Unfortunately, these challenges have only accelerated in Q4 and, as a result, today we are restructuring and reducing the size of our team, impacting roughly 20% of our team members. As your CEO, I own this outcome and take full responsibility for the decisions that got us here,” read the mail.
