Merritt Group Kicks Off the Giving Season at Head Start

Merritt Groupers kicked off the season of giving on Tuesday with a trip to Head Start, a branch of Northern Virginia Family Service’s (NVFS) early education program. The Head Start program is designed to promote school readiness in low-income children ages 3 to 5, who may otherwise find themselves behind their peers in preparedness once they reach kindergarten. Through educational, health, nutritional, social and other services, Head Start enhances the cognitive development of the children who participate.

Merritt Group's Got Spirit! How About You?

Last week, Merritt Group celebrated our first annual Spirit Week. With a fun-filled theme each day and small in-office events throughout the week, we focused on physical well-being and healthy competition.

On Monday, Merritt Group-ers suited up to reveal their inner superheroes (or supervillains), then used their powers for a heated game of office knockout. Senior VP & Partner, Shahed Ahmed, eventually took home the win, but not without some fierce competition from account supervisor, Mia Damiano.

Remembering Patty Groce with Inaugural Award to Three Roots International

Caring. Welcoming. Warm. Vibrant. Smart. Funny. Full of life. These are just a few words and phrases that come to mind when remembering Patty Groce, former vice president of Human Relations here at Merritt Group. Patty served the agency for 10 years, bringing countless talented employees through the doors and caring for staff so well. She made a lasting impact on this agency and its culture of working hard, playing hard, and giving back, and is missed each and every day.
