When you are the manager your words and actions are amplified. Your team takes cues from you and your attitude has huge impact on those around you, likely way more than you realize. You have way more influence than you think you do.
Ever wish you could go back to being a teenager again? Have you ever thought, “If I only I knew then, what I know now I could have had so much fun.”?
Consider that you may be in that same situation right now, but the fun you are missing is the fun of fully using the management megaphone to transform your team’s experience. The power is yours.
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.
