Utah-based learning platform for IT professionals, Pluralsight is letting go 20% of its overall workforce ~ 400 employees of its overall headcount.
Company’s CEO Aaron Skonnard in an email to the employees – did share the news of the layoffs.
“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. 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.”
