Looking for a fun idea for your company holiday party that does not cost a bundle but is super fun? Why not take a page from the IBEX Payroll Herd.
This year IBEX rented our local community centre, had a potluck dinner, and for fun we had a gift exchange and played spongee hockey outdoors on the rink ice.
We had an open bar, but it turned out we were so busy having fun we barely drank anything! A safe and affordable evening. We all agreed it was a really, really good time and something we would definitely consider doing again. We made a video to show the world just how much fun we had – all on a budget.
IBEX Payroll extends our profound respect and immeasurable gratitude to all the ancestors and keepers of the land on whose traditional territories our work takes place. We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. This land is sacred, historical, and significant.
Every time we acknowledge this truth, we have an invitation and an opportunity to reflect on the wrongs of the past, what we do in the present, and what we can do to continually honour the people whose lands and water we benefit from today.
This statement only acts as a first step in honouring the land we reside on and its peoples, and must be paired with education, understanding and informed action.
