TEMPORARY & CONSULTANCY STAFFING

Merit offers temporary staffing services allowing you to fill your employment gap and focus on your other priorities. We have a pool, constantly refreshed, of candidates on stand-by ready to report for your position, on the same day, if need be.

Need someone to cover for an employee’s absence for a day or two? Need someone for a specific project either short or long term? Perhaps you need a large group to fulfil a special one-off, or regular, project? Need someone to cover for a maternity leave or medical leave? Need someone permanently but first you have to convince those with the authority to sign off on headcount and budget that the need is indeed there?

TEMP-TO-PERM STAFFING

During these challenging economic times, we find that clients increasingly use the temp-to-perm staffing route a solution to their hiring needs. We are incidentally able to reduce your conversion fee when/if the Merit temp becomes permanent. Ask one of our consultants today about designing your own staffing solution.

Merit also offers a realistic solution for your company if you are unsure about adding to your staff, perhaps for workload, budgetary or headcount considerations. Our temp-to-perm option allows you the flexibility of having your position being filled initially with a Merit temp with a view, if circumstances permit you to hire permanently, to transfer the temp to your payroll.

PERMANENT STAFFING

The traditional and still popular way of hiring. If you know what you are looking for, Merit will find it for you. We can reduce your cost and the time that it takes for you to perform all the necessary steps in hiring a new employee, leaving you free to work on your revenue-producing tasks, or important HR or operational issues. For line managers, we offer advice and years of expertise to help you…so instead of spending countless hours and dollars on sourcing, recruiting, interviewing, and determining the suitability of a candidate…we can do it for you. We are also able to conduct background checks and take up reference checks if requested. And for Human Resources professionals, we can partner with you in expediting the process leaving you freer for your many other priorities. Unique to our process is the time we take in meeting with candidates on a one-to-one basis and thoroughly understanding their goals and qualities (and verifying their skill set). By doing so, we are able to assess accurately the suitability of candidates for specific positions, to make the right connections happen, and produce long-lasting, successful relationships.

Merit has related services to make your hiring and on-boarding processes easier.
