The Everest Payroll System is not a static thing.

The famous ‘Prioritized Customer Needs’ Wall

The Everest payroll system is constantly undergoing changes and updates thanks to our tech crew Mountain Do. Led by Frank our Head of Mountain Do, the crew analyzes customer needs and makes changes and updates to the system appropriately. Let me give an example of how this might work:

Every day the IBEX crew meets and talks about improvements or changes we need to make to the system. We get these ideas for improvements from customers and from our experts who work with the nooks and crannies of the system every day. Since we let Mountain Do go home at night (Sigh.. Labour laws..) we prioritize the improvements based on need, cost and time. I think our Head of Herd Geeks Peregrin put it best this morning:

“If we had time and money the system could do everything!” (The coffee making time-piece is in the works)

Once we choose projects Mountain Do works through them and deploys the upgrades in deployments. On average we are deploying updates weekly or biweekly.

So it’s pretty simple. This stuff just keeps getting better.

Kind of like wine. Everyone like wine right?

Goatbuzzter out.

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.
