We can tackle ALL of you HR challenges allowing you to focus on your core competencies. Phil Worrell, the President/CEO of Strategic Employee Engagement has been providing strategic HR solutions to organizations of all sizes since 1990.

We are a full-service Human Resources support firm specializing in:

Compensations, Payroll & Benefits Management

Compensation and incentives are a common topic of discussions in organizations of all sizes. Common questions include: “Are we paying our employees competitively within the market?” “Do we have the right bonus plan?” and “How do we resolve internal equity issues?”


Temporary workers are essential for organizations with constantly changing project workloads and seasonal skill needs. Employers can identify the niche expertise they need for the tasks at hand and leverage temp employees to quickly scale up or down team members as needed to best finish required work. Strategic Employee Engagement is your one-stop staffing solution. We offer short term, long term, temp to perm, and permanent job assignments. Our goal is to place the right employee in the right job.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)

Attracting and recruiting top talent is key to any organization’s success. Strategic Employee Engagement combines advanced cloud-based technology with experienced recruitment specialists to deliver both project based and continuous recruitment services. Whether you need to quickly staff an entire department or conduct a careful search for just one key position, we can help you recruit the best possible talent for your business.

Change Management

Change management is the discipline that guides how we prepare, equip and support individuals to successfully adopt change in order to drive organizational success and outcomes. Strategic Employee Engagement can help your company navigate change through a systematic approach to change management to allow individuals in your organization to move from their own current states to their own future states.

Compliance Assistance

It’s important to stay abreast of action at the federal level. Keep in mind, however, that these federal laws set the floor beneath which you cannot go. State and local governments have been very active in recent months, and employers also need to know about any requirements that go above and beyond federal law. Requirements like anti-discrimination laws, wage and hour laws, family and medical leave, immigration laws, benefits, safety laws, union laws.

Contract HR Support

Contract HR Support is the process of sub-contracting human resources functions to an external supplier. Reviews of business processes have led many organizations to decide that it makes business sense to sub-contract some or all non-core activities to specialist providers.  Some common outsourced HR functions are:

  • Recruiting.
  • Temporary staffing.
  • Background checks and drug screening.
  • Relocation.
  • Payroll.
  • Benefits administration.
  • Coaching.
  • Creating/updating employee handbooks and policy manuals.

Employee/ Labor Relations

Do you ever wonder if your HR practices are in compliance with federal and state labor laws? It is not unusual for employers to unknowingly practice incorrect and illegal HR practices. Strategic Employee Engagement offers HR assessments to resolve the unknown.

Employee Surveys

Organizations work hard to attract top talent, but they can’t stop there. Retention is key. Employee surveys are a great way to collect comprehensive feedback from your team at every level. Strategic Employee Engagement facilitates confidential employee surveys resulting in a high participation rate. Once we compile the feedback, the Strategic Employee Engagement consulting team identifies top areas of strength and weakness and presents this in an executive summary along with recommendations for improvement.

Employee Training Programs

For more than 30 years, we’ve brought Professional development and HR training to Businesses, large and small. Training can be scheduled in a number of shorter sessions, off-shift or even weekends to meet the demands of your business. Look no further than Strategic Employer Engagement for all your onsite training needs.

Internal Investigations

Conducting workplace investigations is one of the most challenging duties that HR professionals must take on. You can be confident that Strategic Employee Engagement will effectively handle any investigation regarding workplace allegations.

Job Descriptions

You’ll need to attract the right type of applicants to eventually hire the right person. We’ll help you craft job descriptions that will streamline the front end of your hiring process.

Performance Management

Managers often state that performance appraisals or annual reviews are one of their most disliked tasks. This is often the result of an ineffective performance appraisal that is not linked to the realities of the job and actual performance of the employee. Performance management helps minimize the performance appraisal or annual review as the focus, and concentrates instead on the real-time feedback, ongoing open communication, coaching and individual development strategies.

Professional Employer Organization (PEO)

A professional employer organization (PEO) is a human resources solution for many small and midsize businesses that don’t have an internal human resources staff or employees. A PEO takes the place of an internal human resources department by handling your HR, payroll and employee benefits. Payroll, benefits, HR, tax administration, and regulatory compliance assistance are some of the many services PEOs provide to growing businesses across the country. Small businesses that work with a PEO grow 7 to 9 percent faster, have employee turnover that is 10 to 14 percent lower, and are 50 percent less likely to go out of business.

Training & Development

In order to maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace, your company must invest in the training and development of your employees. Our training and development focuses on both training employees for their current jobs and developing skills for their future roles and responsibilities. Strategic Employee Engagement experts can customize the training and development programs that you need to ensure your employees are equipped to achieve optimal performance.

Workplace Safety / Workers Compensation Management

You care about your employees, especially when it comes to making sure they have a safe working environment. Strategic Employee Engagement partners’ dedicated workplace safety professionals can help you design and administer a workplace safety program that not only ensures your company is compliant with OSHA and other federal and state safety regulations, but also educates your employees on how to prevent on-the-job accidents. If the unthinkable happens and an employee does get injured on the job, you can be sure our team will be there to make sure to facilitate the process of getting the employee back to work.

We can tackle ALL of you HR challenges allowing you to focus on your core competencies.
