Soft drinks firm Britvic Soft Drinks Ltd. is taking advantage of the Government's Home Computing Initiative to offer its 2,800 Great Britain's employees subsidized PCs with e-learning software. Staff can choose either a hi-spec or low-spec PC, or a laptop. Employees can use the company LMS to find courses they would like to take, which Britvic will then pay for. Caz Hartard, training and development manager at Britvic, says the company expects to gain in two ways, from an increase in employee's IT literacy, and from greater staff loyalty inspired by the benefit. Around 40 per cent of Britvic's staff work in factories and do not have access to PCs. The company expects these workers to benefit the most. The focus is on production based staff, says Hartard. He hopes that around 25 per cent of the workforce will eventually take advantage of the scheme. The scheme is being run through e-learning company Futuremedia.
