About Our Company


Merces Consulting Group, Inc. (“Merces“) is a nationally-recognized management consulting firm that provides advice and consultation to organizations wishing to improve their performance through changes to their organization and human resources processes. Founded by the members of the Detroit compensation consulting practice of a major international consulting firm in 1991, and formerly known as Management Resource Center, Inc. (MRC), Merces continues to add to its scope of services, bringing more and more talented staff to work with its clients.  More than twenty years later, Merces continues the same approach that has attracted hundreds of clients to the firm since its founding – bringing the high level professional approach of a major international firm to bear, at costs that nearly any organization can afford.

Merces has gone through many changes over the years, but has retained a strong sense of business ethics and attention to the needs of its clients.  The firm’s initial focus was on the development and implementation of employee compensation plans, as well as the collection of compensation and benefits data.  Over the years, Merces has developed a strong and growing practice in the field of organization design, helping organizations better structure their human assets; application of compensation programs to organizational structures is a natural pairing of services. The firm has added capacities in other areas, including employee communications and general human resource management, and has established strategic partnerships with other service providers in specialty areas.

While the firm’s headquarters and technical services staff are located in Royal Oak, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, our clients are nationwide. Merces opened an office in Gainesville, Florida in January of 2014 to better serve our clients in our new Southeast Region, and plans on adding additional offices in 2014 and beyond.

How We’re Different

At Merces, we focus on methods that work, using time-tested techniques that we adapt to changing environments and circumstances. We’re short on buzz-words, we don’t believe in fads, we don’t experiment on our clients, and we don’t measure success based on how much money we make. We don’t tell you what you want to hear, we tell you what you need to know. If your objective is to see how much you can get away with, you should probably talk to someone else. If you want to know how to be a quality organization with quality people working for you, give us a call.

Our mission is to help every organization become stronger and more sustainable through effective organization design, human resource management, and compensation programs, all aligned to their missions and valuing the contributions of their employees.
