Quality & Value
Expert HR. For Less
WHY ByMERIT HR?
Big HR firm expertise, small firm service & value
ByMerit HR is dedicated to meeting the Human Resource needs of small and midsized businesses.
We provide expertise to businesses that don’t have an HR department, support companies that have an “HR department of one”, and enhance companies that have an in-house HR team.
Our boutique firm bridges the gap between big HR consulting companies serving large corporations and companies offering basic HR services like payroll processing.
As former “big HR firm” consultants, we provide corporate-quality consulting, while our “small HR firm” structure affords tailored HR solutions at lower cost.
ByMERIT FEATURED CONSULTANT
Founder of ByMerit HR
Gary Dumais, Psy.D., SPHR
Innovator of "Decision Resilience" and the
Decision Resilience Instrument (DRI)
I founded ByMerit HR because small businesses frequently seek my help with their Human Resource needs.
Unlike many HR consultants, I have a doctoral degree in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) in addition to my work experience and certification in Human Resources.
I started my career doing cognitive and personality evaluations in hospitals and other clinical settings…
I then went to work for global HR consulting firms, applying my expertise in psychometric evaluation and counseling to the business sector. I specialized in assessing and coaching executives for corporations.
When one of my corporate consulting clients asked me to oversee their HR department, I became their Human Resources Manager. I went on to earn certification as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), and held leadership roles in HR organizations.
After gaining years of experience, I started my own consulting firm, Select Human Resources, with a focus on offering psychometric assessment for pre-employment evaluation, employee development, and teambuilding. I also coined the term “Decision Resilience” and developed the Decision Resilience Instrument (DRI).
In recent years, I’ve found that clients want my advice about human resource matters in addition to employee assessment. Thus, I founded ByMerit HR to meet small and midsize businesses’ human resource needs.
I’m dedicated to providing “big HR firm” expertise at exceptional value.
