The world of human resources can be cold and tedious, but it doesn't have to be. When you break it down, human resources is about people with real lives, needs, dreams, and emotions.
The best businesses in the world respect and cherish this human-side, seeing their employees as the amazing people that they are. These companies want the best for their employees because it's the right thing to do, and because it's the best course of action for their business.
Sequent is a full stack HR services company. We specialize in the entire landscape of HR, not just one fragment. We are thought leaders and subject matter experts as much as friends and confidants. We stay on top of market changes so we can help clients with what's next-not just the what's now.
Ego has no place in our world. We do whatever is necessary to help your employees feel appreciated and to help grow your business. No job is too big or too small. No conversation is worthless or wasted. No person is unimportant.
We adjust our capabilities to provide precisely what the client needs and nothing they don't.
We start by investing in relationships built to last. We get to know our clients on a human level-their hopes, dreams, fears, and pains. We take pride in being a partner committed to our client's growth and success. Our clients are our heroes.
We concentrate on the details so that our HR solutions perfectly align to the needs and opportunities of our clients. From tailored consulting engagements to configured outsourcing services, we adjust our capabilities to provide precisely what the client needs and nothing they don't.
We also respect the sensitivities that come along with HR matters. We work hard to deeply and truly care for your employees as if they were our own. We believe that employee happiness means everything to the productivity and profitability of any business.
And we execute every project with fresh eyes and build custom solutions that exceed our clients' expectations. A lot of cookie cutter HR solutions exist in the marketplace. Not here. We reject vanilla approaches that produce generic deliverables and yield average results.
Three guiding principles have steered Sequent's way: delight clients, honor the law, never compromise the company's values.
Sequent began as many entrepreneurial ventures do-with a man, a dream, and a small office.
Bill Hutter founded Sequent in 1995. His first day consisted of working at an empty metal desk in borrowed office space with no phone. He had no clients, just his dream and a drive to work hard to make it a reality. More than once that first day, Bill asked himself, "What have I done?" Now, years later, the answer is quite simple. We have built a company that makes a positive, lasting contribution to our community and creates a difference in the lives of each other. We work to satisfy our clients’ business objectives, and most of the time, we have fun doing it!
In the early 2000s, Sequent enriched its ability to service the employment needs of clients by completing a series of acquisitions as well as investing in best-in-class technologies. Consulting engagements were added into the offering around the same time, transforming Sequent into the full stack HR partner that it is today.
Sequent has evolved over the years into a recognized symbol for business well-being powered by employee happiness. Three guiding principles have steered the way: delight clients, honor the law, never compromise the company's values.
