5 years ago, our MD Matt Sampson, recognised an opportunity to add value to organisations operating within the Victorian Planning, Architecture, Construction and Engineering industries, by developing and distributing a market leading report. Covering HR and recruitment trends, business conditions as well as salaries, the hard copy report became known as The PACE Survey.
Unlike most industry reports which are sold for commercial profit, it was decided from day one that PACE would be completely not-for-profit, with all proceeds being donated to an annual partner charity.
In the first 5 years, PACE raised over $62,000.00 for charities to assist them in accomplishing their mission.
This year, PACE partnered with One Voice, a Melbourne-based charity committed to restoring dignity by empowering young Australians experiencing homelessness, with the aim of raising enough money to fit out a woodwork shop in their new Life Restoration Housing Community ‘Elevate’.
Today, we are incredibly proud to confirm that we have achieved our goal, with the 2018 PACE Survey raising $17,184.35 in funds to support One Voice.
This achievement represents the power of community. While Aspect is only a small business, we were able to recognise an opportunity to bring together a group of individuals and organisations to produce a report that not only provides market insights, but also has the power to change the lives of many young Australians for years to come.
Thank you to everybody who has contributed to making The PACE Survey what it is today. Whether it be time, energy, or money, we could not have achieved this incredible feat without each and every one of you.
We are more excited than ever about next year’s survey and the change it will make. Watch this space for the reveal of One Voice’s new woodwork shop!
