We Make People’s Lives Better

It’s a bold statement, but it’s true. People spend most of their waking hours at work. HR is all about making that time a positive and rewarding work experience while achieving the organization’s goals. It isn’t or—it’s and.

We believe in the power of and.

We value the organizations we work with and the people we place in them. Recruiting for the right match makes the world a better place, and we strive to do our part in that by investing in long-term relationships with Bay Area HR professionals and beyond.

When we say long-term relationships, we mean it! Danika Davis was recruited by MeritHR to one of her first HR jobs, and now she’s our CEO. She believed in our mission to bring great HR to organizations so much that she became an owner.

We don’t just recruit people for HR jobs, we invest in their success. As Danika puts it, “We don’t just place HR people, we are Human Resources people.”

Thank you, Danika! You and your team are a blessing and I am grateful for your efforts to work with HR leaders everywhere! Most of all, though, your ability to develop relationships is key and I am honored to work with all of you at MeritHR!

Feedback is a gift to any organization. We use the gold standard for client feedback – the Net Promoter Score (NPS). A Net Promoter Score(NPS) is the percentage of customers rating their likelihood to recommend a company, a product, or a service to a friend or colleague. This isn’t an average of what folks say because we don’t aspire to be average. The scale ranges from  -100 to 100. 

We are honored that our clients have put us in the World Class category.

The staffing industry NPS average is -2. Ours is 86.

We believe in…
