Former IBM CEO, Sir Thomas Watson – once said: To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.”

As 2022 draws to a close, we look back and reflect on the many ways that we, as a business – put our heart and soul into the year that was.

A few highlights include:

  • Over $70,000 raised for charitable organisation and ongoing philanthropic initiatives such as: Bravehearts Day, World Thinking Day, Animal Welfare League Queensland, World’s Greatest Shave, Jeans for Genes Day, 24-Hour Golf Challenge and Friends with Dignity
  • 63 Lifeblood Workplace Giving Corporate Donations
  • 3,250 Trees planted through Ecologi
  • Sustainability and recycling programs supported including: 10 Cent Tom, Nespresso Coffee Pods, Clean Up Australia Day, MobileMuster, as well as the eWaste Program
  • 130 Christmas presents donated to Friends with Dignity’s Gifts for Friends Collection Drive
  • 3 Business Awards
    • SAA recognised as an ABA100® Winner for Community Contribution in The Australian Business Awards
    • 2023 Winner for a consecutive year in the category Financial Planning Services
    • Bravehearts Platinum ThankShoe Award – presented for the donation of funds and/or goods and services to the value of $100,000 and over, or to cumulative long-term supporters

Through growing, we are able to give. We extend humble and heartfelt thanks to all our customers for helping us to create this positive and truly measurable impact. Furthermore, through the incredible generosity of our staff, and company matching, it has been our great privilege to build better futures for communities across Australia, as well as beyond our borders.

There are many ways to celebrate at this special time of year. We are blessed to live in a vibrant, multicultural nation, feeling the influence of other cultures and traditions from all over the globe. 

In whatever way you choose to mark the occasion, we hope that you will celebrate the successes of this year (2022) with SAA – as your own, as we continue to show our heart – and wish you much joy, happiness and prosperity – for the year to come.
