​PACE community raises $120,000 for charity

Aspire Youth Projects 640x480

Over the past 10 years, Aspect’s annual PACE Survey report has raised well over $100,000 for various charities a feat that we are incredibly proud of.

At the start of every year, Aspect calls on hundreds of contributing firms across Victoria to anonymously complete the PACE survey, providing both industry and company-specific data related to employee salaries, market conditions, and HR practices. The result is an accurate in-depth, unbiased, market-led, and industry-specific report that continues to help businesses make smarter decisions and more accurate forecasts, plus the ability to benchmark against competitors. The salary guide contains up-to-date average salary levels for over 360 industry related roles is equally valuable to employees and job seekers in seeing where they rank amongst their peers.

Now entering our 10th year of the PACE survey, we're extremely proud of the not-for-profit model were every dollar generated from sales of the report are donated to a different charity partner each year. We would like to give a big thank you to the organisations and individuals that have contributed to the PACE Survey over the journey as we would not be able to produce the report without you. We are grateful for your continued support, contribution of valuable industry data, investment of time and energy, and the generous donations that have resulted in another brilliant outcome — making a positive difference in our community.

We are pleased to announce that last year's report raised $8,250 for our 2021 charity partner, Youth Projects. We have been overwhelmed with the continued generosity of the PACE community, with total contributions totaling approximately $120,000 since the first edition was published back in 2013. As a business, we are extremely proud to see the benefits the market intel brings to readers, and equally proud of the difference the PACE community makes to people in need of support.

The 2022 PACE survey is already well underway, and we look forward to sharing the 2022 PACE report with you in April, when it will be made available to download free of charge.

Youth Projects - 2021 Charity partner

Youth Projects are a local, independent, registered charity providing front line support to young people and individuals experiencing disadvantage, unemployment, homelessness, alcohol and other drug issues, and assisting those looking to re-engage with learning and employment — breaking the cycle of disadvantage.

Nic Horton, Marketing and Communications Manager at Youth Projects explained “Young people have often been the first out of work during the pandemic and are more likely be the last to return to the workplace post-lockdowns. We are investing in building the capacities of young people in the job market and providing critical social connections through lockdowns and beyond. The support from the PACE community is helping us continue this high impact support for the young people who need us most right now.” he said.
