About the Team

People Development and Culture team at Nutanix exists to create and heighten extraordinary learning experiences for Nutanix employees, with the mission of building and nurturing the “never-stop-learning” culture at Nutanix. The nature of work that this team delivers, is distinctly different from what traditional L&D function typically does elsewhere. First, we subscribe to a much broader definition of learning (much beyond training courses), which includes anything and everything Nutants do to learn, enhance their impact and be better at what they are doing. Second, our role is to increase awareness and sow more and more learning across people and cultural processes in Nutanix in innovative overt and covert ways. We work hard to make learning fun and try to make learning easy for Nutants, who anyway have little patience or time for anything boring or irrelevant. Lastly, even though our work is “invisible, soft and abstract”, insights we seek from data deeply informs our overall strategy, key decisions and as parameters for success measurement.
