PepsiCo UK is rolling out an e-learning programme covering desktop Information Technology (IT) skills to more than 1,500 people in Great Britain. Courses include the European Computer Driving Licence, which the drinks and food giant is keen to promote. The e-learning material will not replace Pepsi UK's current IT training provision, which is delivered through instructor-led classes, face-to-face workshops and roadshows, but it should help to standardise training, cut costs, and allow employees more time to learn. Gill Haggarty, IT personal productivity manager at PepsiCo UK, said employees would be able to 'log on and learn' when they needed to find out how an application works, or refresh their knowledge. Time will not be set aside for learning within work hours, but staff can access the material from home personal computers.
