Show Notes

Our guest this time is Lauren Waters, Talent Experience Manager, Americas at  Xero, accounting software that provides tools for small businesses, accountants, and bookkeepers. Lauren understands the process of trying to land a job in the tech industry and has first-hand experience of what sticks and what doesn’t.

Questions For Lauren Include:

  • How has the growth of the gig economy and more need for accounting software for start-ups over the past few years impacted Xero?
  • In September 2022 you moderated a panel at the Agility Reimagined Summit, held at Xero. The session was called Building a Connected and Supportive Culture in the Future of Work. It considered how we can ensure a connected, inclusive, and performance-oriented culture in a more tech-enabled and remote work environment. Tell our listeners about some of the issues the panel covered. 
  • We have a sense of the cool culture at Xero through being involved in the awesome events you hosted in 2022 and talking with many members of your team. Why do you believe it’s important that candidates demonstrate they care about culture fit with a potential employer’s brand? What can aligned values do for employee engagement and productivity levels?
