Simpro stands with the people of New Zealand

July 21, 2023

Our response to the recent shooting

As a company, one of our values is “We Care.” Behind the spirit of that value is the importance of viewing our industry as a community first, with the power to support each other. The tragedy in Auckland, which took place at a construction site, demonstrates the importance of raising awareness for mental health in the trades, and the unique challenges faced by tradies worldwide. While tradies often encounter demanding and stressful work environments, mental health and well-being is often stigmatized or ignored.

What We Are Doing To Help

We are working with our partner, MATES in Construction, to raise funds while spreading awareness about the importance of mental health in the trades. Simpro has committed to donating NZD $5,000 and will be using our platform to encourage our community to join us in this effort. In addition, Simpro pledges to match any donations made through this link, doubling the impact of their contribution, by up to an additional NZD $5,000. We would like to encourage our customers, partners, and community to stand with Simpro to support the people of New Zealand during this difficult time.
