Along the way, you'll hear concepts that will stop you in your tracks, concepts that inspire you to ask yourself, what's the most futureforward way to approach my people leadership? We all know the future of work isn't waiting around, so let's get on with the show. Hello and welcome to the first episode of technically people. My name is Jordan Alfred and I'm one of the producers of the show. We're here today with cohost Sheridan or Cmo at built in and Tiffany Myers built in, the director of creative and brand. How's it going today? Everything's great. We are excited to share with you about technically people. Awesome. And Sheridan, how are you doing? I'm doing great. Thank you so much for asking. We're really excited about this opportunity to...

...share our learnings and learn more from some of our guests. What's been the highlight of your weekend so I have this new hobby that I'm pretty awful at, but I enjoy it greatly. It's called pickleball and it's wonderful and fun and you cannot take yourself very seriously playing a sport named after a pickle. That's hilarious. I love it. I always tell you when when testing, tell me I hate pickles or I love pickles when we're audio testing. So I love that. I love pickleball. We used to play that in gym. Al Righty, to give everyone a bit more context, today we'll be talking about what you, the listener, can expect to hear from the podcast. First, Tiffany, can you tell us a bit about what built in does as a company? Yeah, definitely. So built in his attack recruitment platform. But that is really the short answer, because what we really do and where our value really lies is that we help tech companies amplify their employer...

...brands and that in turn attracts really skilled tech talent. So we showcase these companies, and really that's whether they want to be known as local, as national, as remote employers or as leaders in Di we managed to do all that by publishing content about these companies, about attack that they're working with, about the people that make up the culture. It's really about what it's really like to work there, and millions of really hard to reach, hard to hire, tech professionals visit our site every month. These are really season professionals and they're really into they hunt. They are so in demand that career sides are emails. They're just not going to capture their attention anymore. But what does capture their attention is built in. They really do rely on us to stay on top of tech trends, stand how of breaking news and also to find out what really innovative companies are up to. Now, when they discover...

...a tech company on our site, so let's say, a company with a mission that they really want to join or a company that's working with a tax stack they really want to work with, they get inspired. They are inspired to apply specifically to their open rolls, and so that is why built in is a top source of qualified in bound talent for our customers. I love it. I love it, Tiffany, before we talk about the podcast, can you tell us a little bit about the work that you and shared and do at built in on a daytoday basis, Sheridan is our chief marketing officer at built in and I am part of the marketing team that she leads. I focus on brand messaging and columns, and Sheridan, you could say, focuses on basically everything. I can tell you for sure that her to do list is just endless, but I want to say that, as a team,...

...are focal point, at least one of them, is delivering that leadership to employers, in other words to our customers. We create workshops and white papers for our webinars and for our community chats. We bring in thinkers who share ideas about the future of work, about the today of work and the tomorrow of work, and we really cover the GAMMEUT. We've covered DEI and belonging. We've had conversations about women in tech. We've done webinars about learning and development and hiring for digital transformation. Really technically people is the logical next step of all of that. It's ideas about the world of work, for the future of work and because it's a podcast, that's just means you can fit all of those ideas now in your back pocket. Built in is a tech recruitment platform that's in constant dialog with leaders about the future of tech. Built in's podcast technically people expands those conversations to help fellow futurists create and lead...

...exceptional workplaces, environments that inspire in Demand Tech professionals to join your company and thrive to learn how built in can help your company attractive best in class professionals visit employers dot built incom. Honestly, it comes down to one of our goals is a company. No matter what we do a built in, it's always about elevating the tech industry and its people, and that is what we're aiming to do with this podcast. Wow, that is so amazing. So, Sheridan, why did the team at built in decide to start the podcast? It's really interesting. I've been in technology and I'm almost embarrassed to say how long, but let's put it this way. I've been through DOT bomb, I've been through to two thousand and eight, I've been through Covid, I've been through a pipeline gas shortage. It's been quite a ride and the market is changed more in the past two years and I've seen it over that...

...entire set of two decades. And so in that transformation of what's going on with technology and even how people are rethinking about hiring and recruiting and retaining people. I feel like we talked to some of the most forward thinking people and forward thinking companies in our day to day interactions and we've learned so much from those people that we want to share that with others who may be grappling with similar issues or finding you know their voice and really reshaping their talent strategy for what we're calling the roaring twenty. We're excited to share that information and the knowledge and actually just ask some of the questions that maybe top of mine for people like us who want to attract and retain the best talent. And it's interesting our CEOS often talks about that. If you're not a tech company today, you soon will be. When you think about technology workers, your most...

...valuable asset walks out of the door every single day or is working from home, and you need to think about how to inspire and motivate and get them to be thinking about those innovations that are going to drive your business forward today and then really for the next twenty years. We have definitely seen our own version of the roaring ties so seeing you guys touch on these points will be so effective and I can't wait to hear it. Shar Itan. What can listeners expect to hear when they listen to each episode? Listeners can expect a really nice blend of theoretical and practical. So, for instance, we may want to talk to the foremost thinkers in motivational psychology and how do you take neuroscience and use that to motivate, retain and bring innovation to your employees? But also we know that not everybody can apply some of the most high end...

...portions of that, like neuro testing. But we also want to make sure that we have practical applications. So we will talk to practitioners, to hur leaders, technology leaders, to find out what they're doing, what's worked for them, and we also want to explore some people's failures, because we're testing a lot of new things out there and we'd like to save you some of those mistake. How can listeners connect with you in case they have ideas for episode topics? Are Guests that you should feature on the show? The first thing is I'd say listeners should visit our site to learn a little bit about how built in can help their company attract the kind of skill tap talents that they need these days, and that site is employers that up built Incom, and just for safety, as the hell built in for you, it's BEU Iltin. So employers dot built INCOM and it did like to learn about me, tiffany Myers or Jardan or and that's Oh our ours. So don't forget...
