StratEx was named by Crain's as one of the Top 25 Best Companies to Work For in 2017. We are a HR service company that enables organizations to untether themselves with the highly manual aspects of the employee life cycle by providing game-changing software; we provide them sleep at night insurance by ensuring they maintain compliancy with the ever-changing labor law landscape; and we provide practical HR support for companies who want us to “manage” the HR function.We started about ten years ago when we saw a gap in the marketplace. At the time, payroll companies were happy slugging it out with each other and the leased employee space (PEO’s) served a nice niche for smaller companies. There was nobody who offered a SaaS solution that automated in a paper-free fashion applicant tracking, onboarding, benefits administration, performance management, time and labor management and payroll. So we decided to build a platform that managed the entire employee life cycle with one database with a highly configurable workflow engine. Ten years later, we are still ruthlessly focused on improving the process.
