Metric commits to doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. As a business, we are charged with creating solutions to reduce environmental impacts. For us, social accountability is about uniting the values, skills and talents of our workforce to protect the natural and built environment. As a team, we commit to being socially accountable to each other, our clients, the neighborhoods we live in and serve, and the global community. We achieve this by encouraging community belonging, quality of life, a diverse and inclusive work environment, reduction of environmental footprints, ethical performance and mentorship of the next generation of scientists, geologists and engineers.
Through our expertise and resources, we strive to promote environmental health and make a positive impact in communities to build a more inclusive, sustainable future for all. We aim to be agents of change on a local, national and global scale through our individuals and collective actions. Our professionals take a leadership role in understanding and promoting sustainability. Our stewardship and sustainability practices include compliance with federal, state and local laws statutes, regulations and guidance. To the extent practical, we incorporate environmentally responsible operations at our facilities including resource conservation, pollution prevention, green technology, education and awareness.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Our mission is most effectively fulfilled through a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusiveness as a core value and practice. This commitment is expressed in our organizational culture, values and behaviors. Metric has an awareness and appreciation of the individual differences throughout the company, including age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, sex, race, range of ability, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. We see strength in diversity.
Metric’s inclusive culture provides an environment where all are welcomed, valued, empowered and heard. We aim to provide all our employees with challenging work, equitable pay and benefits, career development support and authority within their specific jobs. Diversity recruitment is a focus of Metric’s business objectives and supported by the company President and executive team. We support greater diversity through active recruitment from underrepresented groups, diverse community collaborations and our internship program.
Metric employees are provided an environment that is focused on bringing out the strengths of each person, and respecting the unique talents, interests, and values they add to our team. Professional Development Initiatives and internal training programs help maintain fair treatment in access, opportunity, and advancement for all employees. Fostering authenticity and employee well-being has identified opportunities to improve inclusion, promote growth and trust at Metric.
Metric’s community service activities give back to the local community and creates opportunities for employees to make a positive impact. The company regularly organizes community service activities, such as neighborhood clean-ups, tree plantings and supply drives. Metric actively encourages and supports employee volunteerism and giving. Not only do we plan and track our corporate engagements, but we also annually track the individual contributions of our employees within their communities. We recognize and monetarily reward employees for their time and good works in the community with a Community Service award. Metric also offers employees opportunities to submit community impact requests for charitable donations and corporate matching.
