Anuj Gupta

In 2015 I was preparing for my move to Australia from India. At the same time I met Brent Pearson (our founder and CEO) through a common friend. Brent was working on conceptual designs of Enboarder at the time, and I was really excited listening to the concepts and the positive impact they could have on employee engagement and the employee-manager relationship.

I joined the team as CTO on a mission to create a world-class product. It has been an awesome journey for me so far. I feel we have grown and achieved a lot in a short span of time.

What are some of the key focus areas of the technology team as we evolve the product?

We have a few key focus areas for the short- and medium-term:

  • Analytics and Insights: We are exploring how we can use various AI technologies to provide a better end-user experience.
  • Integrations: We’re focusing on how to increase the usage of Enboarder in the flow of work by integrating with tech like Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Whatsapp, to name a few.
  • Data Privacy and Security: This is a critical focus as we process customer data. Enboarder is ISO27001 certified and SOC-2 Type 2 audited company.

Tech consolidation is a key priority for many companies right now. What advice would you give your IT and tech peers assessing a product like Enboarder? What value do we provide across a broader HR tech stack?

Tech consolidation is a theme right now in a tough economic climate where companies are trying to consolidate systems, especially in the HR tech space. When our prospects experience a demo of Enboarder they can see how easy and flexible the product is and the value it provides in improving employee engagement and connections amongst employees. It’s a product designed for HR people.

Enboarder also has integrations with quite a lot of HRIS, ATS, and ticketing systems, and this can help organizations to easily connect these systems together using Enboarder.

How would you describe your leadership style?

As a leader I work with my team to inspire and empower them. I try to create an environment where my team can thrive and grow personally and professionally. I am also a strong believer in leading by example, demonstrating the same level of commitment, work ethic, and values I hold my team to.

How did you spend your last Enrichment Day?

My son and I went for a bike ride together and picked up trash in the neighborhood for a cleaner environment.
