Human Resource Consulting

Make wise HR decisions for your business.

We advise on HR policy & process, staffing, training, performance management, conflict resolution, leadership development, organizational structure, compliance & risk-management, company culture, employee morale, employee job satisfaction, job roles & responsibilities, workplace politics, workplace bullying, human capital strategy, and more. 

Our consultants have doctoral degrees in psychology, the highest professional certifications in human resources, and a wealth of experience.

Hiring Assessments

Make wise hiring and promotion decisions. 

Employees can be your greatest business asset – or liability. The costs of a bad hire can be astronomical – expert candidate evaluation is a wise investment.

Gain insight into candidates’ personality, reasoning skills, strengths, and weaknesses before you decide to hire.

Our business psychologists are expert interviewers and qualified to use just about any pre-employment, personality, or cognitive assessment available, including The Predictive Index, DISC, Watson-Glaser, Hogan suite, and many more.

Employee Coaching & Development

Strengthen employees for stronger business success. 

Our doctoral-level business coaches leverage psychology and validated tools & techniques to help supervisors, managers, executives, business owners, physicians and other professionals increase their effectiveness, overcome obstacles, and accelerate their careers.

We develop interpersonal skills, management & leadership skills, teamwork & collaboration, critical thinking skills, time-management, communication skills, conflict resolution, political savvy, influencing skills, and much more.

Employee & 360 Surveys

Perception can be reality, so it’s wise to know what others perceive.

When done right, surveys can help you gain insight into what employees or customers really think, feel, and perceive so you can make wise decisions accordingly.

Trust, anonymity, confidentiality, objectivity, and best practices are just a few of the advantages we provide as surveyors.

Our business psychologists are skilled in asking the right questions in the right way to gather useful data.

From understanding employee concerns to gaining constructive 360 degree survey feedback on managers, ByMerit HR has the knowledge, tools, and methods to do online surveys, structured interviews, and focus groups.

Succession Planning

Are you prepared for the next company owner, president, or CEO? 

Or what would you do if your top manager left tomorrow? Do you have people ready to take on their responsibilities?  

The most successful businesses think-ahead when it comes to staffing and human capital needs.

We can help you develop succession plans, identify high-potential talent within your company, and accelerate their skill development.

Company Culture Change

Low employee morale, ongoing coworker tensions & conflict, communication problems, lack of teamwork & collaboration, or other company culture issues getting in the way of success? 

Or maybe you’d like to cultivate a company culture that promotes innovation, excellence, cooperation, customer focus, or similar?

Our business psychologists have insight into how to shape company culture and are uniquely equipped to facilitate change.
