Macro's Good Neighbour Policy

Macro has worked hard to build our reputation, and one of the pillars of our success has been our “Good Neighbour” policy, which is our approach to be respectful when in a local community. We understand that when we move into a town, the people who live there deserve our respect.

When Macro resides in a community for any length of time, we support and sponsor as much as we can; our investment is spent in communities where our jobs take place.

Macro prefers to invest time and equipment into the local community, often in the form of upgrading grounds and facilities. For example, the Project Manager will reach out to the local community and volunteer the crew and equipment to upgrade the local dirt tracks.

We see that the little things matter, so we gather recycling on site (and in the office) and donate the money to local kids’ clubs.

Along with encouraging crews to volunteer in the local community, we also encourage them to participate in local events, curling clubs, and fundraisers, which provides financial support for the communities and moral support for the crews away from home – a win/win.

Code of Ethics

We have moved into many small towns and are aware that our presence may double a town’s population, which is why we make a point of subcontracting and employing respectful and upstanding people and businesses. They are to represent Macro and follow our “Code of Ethics” to be respectful, drive respectfully, and act responsible while in the local community. Our motto is “Attitude is Everything”.

Our Community Investments

Macro is approached on a regular basis to sponsor individuals in sports and activities; however, we prefer to sponsor at the league or club level so that all children participating can benefit from our support.

Generally, Macro invests in programs for children, seniors, societies, and upgrades to community facilities (i.e. senior housing, historical society).
