Merit Consulting has been a fixture in the placement industry since 1984. Our goal was to transform the traditional and impersonal "employment agency" into a more personal and professional Human Resources Partner. We believe that smaller is better because it allows us to interface more directly and effectively with a select clientele.

Merit Consulting Services was established in March 1984 by two individuals with a vision to change the impersonal approach that was associated with the "employment agency business". The reputation has stayed with us into the millennium. We believe that the size of Merit (8 Personal Consultants) is effective, because, it allows us to conduct our business in a more professional and controlled atmosphere. This philosophy has allowed us to become one of the more respected and successful agencies in the Personnel Industry.

We recruit and retain top talent with a wide array of skills sets, educational levels and experience: all of which are highly qualified in their areas of expertise. In addition we work closely with the candidates taking into account their objectives and goals along with the other parameters that they have established in their job search. This approach is to ensure that both the client and candidate have the opportunity to develop a meaningful and beneficial relationship.

Merit offers three programs/types of candidates: permanent, temporary and their new and very popular, temp to hire. Our applicant pool and process along with the different program options allow us to provide the right candidates under the right circumstances.
