Corporate Social Responsibility
Metro Testing + Engineering believes in creating a positive, sustainable impact to the communities where we live, work, and do business. As a company, we have adopted a set of guiding principles for our business that address common values which are important to us such as ethics, integrity, commitment, teamwork, employee respect, communication, mentorship, and customer service. We incorporate socially and environmentally responsible business practices into our processes wherever possible and we seek the same from our clients, suppliers, and business associates.
“Every company should adopt a form of social responsibility into their business because it just makes good sense. We can no longer be self-absorbed in the way companies operate and do business. Each of us should do our part and together we can make a difference in our industry, our community, and our society.”
Robert Gilbert, President & CEO
We believe strongly in being a good corporate citizen and helping to make the communities in which we live, work, and do business a better place because we are intentional in our activities:
- We have established a “Community Day” which grants employees one full day to volunteer their time to help a local charitable organization in their community to support a cause to make a positive change in our society.
- We support local post-secondary educational institutions that provide technical programs which support our industry through sponsorships, scholarships, and bursaries.
- We promote healthy business communities by being members of local chambers of commerce to help support a sustainable business environment that will attract others to invest in our communities.
We value and respect the unique skills and experience that each employee brings to the company. We hire on the basis of equality, technical competency, relevant experience, and suitability to the position. Our employees come from around the world bringing to our company a rich cultural diversity which we embrace.
We work hard to partner with our customers to provide them with the ability to successfully execute on their business objectives. We recognize that our customers are the cornerstone to company success, and our mutual success will lead to healthy and sustainable communities.
We constantly work at minimizing the impact our business has on the environment by reducing waste, recycling, and reducing the consumption of energy resources at every stage in the delivery of our services.
Metro Testing + Engineering will be the first materials testing company in Western Canada to achieve a Zero Waste certification because leadership in our industry takes energy, time, and effort. We want to leave a positive impact as we help build better communities to live, work, and play in.
