Last Thursday evening, Aspect were thrilled to win the Recruitment, Consulting and Staffing Association of Australia & NZ, CSR Excellence Award!
What we love most about this, it’s not an award for just us, but for all our community – clients, candidates, partners and charities– that have been a part of the journey too, we cannot do what we do without all the ongoing support.
However, our true reward is being able to serve and contribute to society and help bring about positive change, and we are so proud to be part of an industry who recognises the importance of giving back.
At Aspect we believe big change starts with a small difference. CSR is in our DNA. In fact, it forms an integral part of our Employee Value Proposition – we want to attract staff who want to make a bigger contribution to society than just spinning a profit.
CSR is not just a one-off activity, it’s something that we do every day and we have a number of key initiatives driven by our staff, across the annual calendar:
PACE Publication – Every employee across Aspect is involved in the 365 day production of our annual PACE report. We manage the entire project with inhouse resources including design, marketing, data analysis, and working with our charity partner to maximise community engagement.
Christmas charity drive – All our team members engage with our clients, candidates, suppliers and industry associations to collect items for the less fortunate members of society. Using our connections and social media channels, our goal is to raise awareness and promote the importance of our chosen charity to the broader community.
St Mary’s House of Welcome – Every Friday morning, two Aspect staff members volunteer in the dining room, serving meals to the disadvantaged – at least 80% of staff have chosen to volunteer at least once in the last 12 months.
Meet A Recruiter – Founding partner of this initiative and brand ambassador, we provide marketing resources to help build brand identity, host Victorian-based events, and manage the partnerships.
Quarterly staff charity contribution – We like to have fun with CSR too! So, at the end of the week when we knock off with a wine or kombucha, each beverage purchased at the A-Bar raises funds for a team nominated charity.
Charity events are where is at, we love a morning tea or mini event - Biggest Morning Tea, Sleep at the ‘G, Bright Pink Lipstick Day, R U OK day.
We would like to also extend a huge congratulations also to our fellow finalists, award winners and everyone who was in the room to celebrate excellence in the recruitment industry. A special shout out to RCSA on hosting such a brilliant night.
