DO NOT ERASE

What’s the investment?

The investment to you will vary based on several factors, including the type of expertise desired, level of talent needed, and talent market conditions. Merit HR is committed to providing only quality employees to your company with a focus on service, long-term relationships and value.

What is the process for finding candidates through Merit HR?

Our search and recruitment efforts begin before you even call us. We have been exclusively placing HR talent for decades and have a unique database of HR professionals built over that time. HR is a career of effective networks. We constantly cultivate that network. We also employ other search techniques such as postings and external database searches.

By clearly understanding your needs and the requirements of the position, we present you with the best candidates.

How long will it take to have an employee in our company?

The time frame for successfully finding an HR professional for you varies based on talent availability and your specific goals. We are committed to sending only the most qualified candidates. For most searches, we typically have candidates within five business days of receiving all relevant information.

What kind of reference or background checks do you provide?

Every applicant is reference checked based on the work history they have provided. Some clients request a background check. Some desire a drug screen, driving record screen or criminal background check. Merit HR can provide these services as well as meet any other need you might have for background or security checks. These can be coordinated through our office, or you may decide to do them yourself through your usual service providers.

What if I am not satisfied with an individual placed by Merit HR?

We realize that not every job is a fit for every person and sometimes that is not clear until the person is working with you. Our contract-to-hire program provides an opportunity for you to see an employee in the work setting and determine if they will be someone you want to hire. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we can replace them. We also offer direct hire services backed by our guarantee.

What kind of jobs do you fill?

Merit HR is a full-service staffing, search and consulting company, and we handle positions in all areas of human resources. By having a broad base of applicants and long-term relationships with professionals across all HR disciplines, as well as various recruiting resources, we can meet your needs in most HR areas of your organization.

Why should I use your service instead of filling the position on my own?

HR is a profession built on relationships. We pride ourselves on the quality of the candidates we work with and the depth of both our expertise and network, allowing us to more quickly find the talent you seek. We were founded and are still led by HR professionals. We don’t just believe in HR; we understand it. We spend all day, every day, talking with HR professionals.

Let us put our network to work for you.
