OUR COMMITMENT

Bring positive change to all those we serve — clients, employees, partners, communities, society, and the planet.

At Matrix, our commitment means something. It means we’re dedicated to making communities better with every project we complete. Whether engineering transportation infrastructure to get you home faster at night or managing environmental programs to restore and protect entire watersheds, everything we do must contribute something positive. Fulfilling our commitment to clients and the public is the ultimate measure of our success.

We have the many skills needed to make the world a better place, and that’s what we do. From every main street to public park we encounter, we make improvements. We help the people who use a space to live greener, more productive, and happier lives. Every project is a chance to come though on our commitment to the greater good.


Community Involvement

We know how new development, construction, or policies can change the world around us. We’re dedicated to giving the communities we serve the same accountable engagement we expect in our own lives. That means learning what people need and bringing those services to them.


Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity

We understand inclusive and respectful engagement as the root of equitable outcomes. It starts with welcoming all voices in a community, hearing people’s needs, and asking how we can use our skills to solve community-defined problems. It continues through public-facing interactions, open ears, and open minds and is sustained by valuing diversity — in the human race, in the communities we serve, in our team.


Professional Development

Through the ever-evolving disciplines that we represent, our team is constantly acquiring new skills to provide creative, cutting-edge solutions to tomorrow’s challenges.

In an always-learning approach, we support a variety of career and personal development opportunities, such as reimbursing testing and licensing fees, providing internal training to expand employee awareness of different fields and individual skillsets, and cultivating opportunities for staff to grow their career at Matrix in whatever ways they choose.

Our Matrix University program provides an educational forum and curriculum tailored to employee interests. It covers topics including leadership, program management, and a range of technical proficiencies.


Health and Safety

Matrix is focused on maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for ourselves, our clients, and our partners.

We regularly provide employees information on health programs and benefits to encourage wellness. We meet or exceed all health and safety standards, laws, and regulations, and we ensure our staff are well-equipped with personal protective equipment and well-trained on all safety procedures.


Partnering with Small Businesses

Matrix understands that inclusivity in all that we do helps ensure diverse populations are engaged and well-represented.

Supporting small businesses engenders creativity and innovative problem-solving and strengthens our local economies. We are dedicated to creating mutually beneficial, collaborative relationships with our subconsultant and providing mentorship to help grow their networks and share opportunities and resources for success. Matrix is proud to work with Minority/Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBE), Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB), Small Business Administration 8(a) certified businesses, and many others.


Sustainability

At Matrix, we incorporate sustainability in our design daily to deliver great products that make our communities more resilient and improve upon our built and natural environment.

We maintain vigilant management of our resources and continually invest in our planet to make it a better home for future generations. Whether through environmental advisory services for redevelopment efforts, creating tools that facilitate renewable energy siting, or promoting wildfire and flood mitigation efforts as fundamental to community planning and good resource management, Matrix works with clients around the country to support the health and vitality of the natural world. Our staff also regularly volunteer their time to clean-up natural areas and protect waterways in our communities.


Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Our commitment to the highest-quality products and services ensures that we meet and exceed our clients’ expectations and that we achieve “Excellence by Design.”

Our approach to Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) encompasses all stages of a project and final product development. We ensure our clients receive quality deliverables by following established procedures for QC, including data control, independent technical reviews, technical coordination reviews, and client feedback/requested revisions, as well as other variables specific to each project. Matrix’s Quality Control Program continues to be refined to meet the evolving requirements of our clients and to ensure we provide the best products and services in the industry. We work with our clients to develop tailored Quality Assurance and Quality Control Plans that consider every step in the process to maintain accuracy and efficiency.

Ensuring Matrix continues to maintain and develop its responsible corporate citizenship is paramount to the growth of our firm, sustainability of our environment, and the betterment of our society.
