This August, Grand Rapids Metrology implemented a new Community Service initiative for its full time employees. Here at GRM we recognize the importance of supporting our community, so we want to give our team the time and opportunity to do so. This new program will award GRM employees 8 hours of annual paid time-off to volunteer for the organization of their choosing. Our management team and human resources department established this initiative in hopes of showing loyalty to both the community and our employees.
Community service time is one of the ways Grand Rapids Metrology supports volunteer involvement as well as promoting positive social impacts. The policy is designed to encourage employees to connect with the people in the community by volunteering their time for something they feel passionate about. Their service must directly support either a school (public or private), non-profit, or non-partisan community organization and be performed within the state of Michigan. Examples of such acceptable organizations are local schools, charity races, food banks, homeless shelters, animal shelters, Habitat homes, etc.
Grand Rapids Metrology believes that while supporting the community, our employees will demonstrate our company values: to exceed expectations every day, inspire positive attitudes and family values, collaborate through shared knowledge, innovate for creative solutions, and embrace and drive change. Grand Rapids Metrology is thankful to have locations throughout the state of Michigan in Grand Rapids, Metro-Detroit, Bay City, Benton Harbor, and Battle Creek. We aspire to show our appreciation to our great State by giving back to those communities who have supported us for almost 100 years!
