Company Description

In the spring of 2010, Alex Riley was working a construction project in Detroit and discovered that not all laborers are suited for the same tasks. “We had a labor force of 150 demolition employees,” he recalls, “but we were supposed to be doing a residential rehabilitation--carpentry, plumbing, roofing, masonry.” After a frustrating experience trying to recruit workers, Riley--along with co-founders Patrick Beal and Paul Kaser—built a staffing website, billing it as “LinkedIn for contractors.” Now, besides connecting talent to local employers, MeritHall and its affiliate companies find road salt for clients, offer facility management and vocational training services, and provide management consulting--all the while helping to revitalize the Motor City. “We really focused on getting Detroiters to work Detroit jobs,” Riley says. --Zoë Henry

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

I believe that the reason our organization is a "Best Place to Work" is mainly because we are a forward-thinking, modern, tech-savvy company in an industry that is antiquated and behind the times. Instead of the typical hierarchical structure of regular companies, we break the team up into pods with leaders who help new employees "apprentice" into the workflow. This promotes a strong sense of security and bond with one another. We also focus a lot on the aesthetics of the office itself, investing in unique furniture and top-quality electronics, so that our employees have the most up-to-date technology.
