Like so many in payroll, Barry Everatt didn’t start with it as a career path.

While he was working as a programmer, he created what he calls “a cradle to grave” payroll system that eventually ceased to exist because of Y2K. That first brush with payroll kept him in the profession for decades.

“I guess through the programming I had some exposure to payroll and I really found the whole thing interesting in that there was compliance on so many different levels,” he said. “There was labour, there was workers’ comp and you had to provide all these things through collecting the data and I really just found it fascinating.”
