Terri Francell

Terri Francell, SPHRTerri Francell, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, is an experienced Human Resources Director, Consultant, Leader and Instructor. Her ability to communicate effective growth measures and development ideas in these fields allows her to keep companies running smoothly during transitions. Examples include: acquisitions, mergers, union negotiations, as well as industrial and business plants operations, openings and closings.

Leaders and managers rely on Terri’s expertise in recruitment, training, negotiations, and motivating employees. She earned a BBA and MBA in Management from The University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB), where she was published in 2002 as co-author on “Goldratt’s Thinking Process Applied to Union Negotiations,” and later taught Human Resources Management and Business Communication classes at the university level.

In her work with a national oilfield-related services company, Terri handled all aspects of human resources needs, including recruiting, onboarding, and retention; due diligence inquiries; policy and process creation and application; and successful employee integration after acquisitions. She was responsible for employee relations, EEO and employee litigations, whistleblower, and ethics hotline calls, as well as leadership training programs, service award and employee recognition awards programs and more. She led a team of 8-12 trained Field Human Resource Managers and Representatives between 2007 – 2021.

When the company announced a move of the corporate office from Midland to Fort Worth, she managed the recruiting, interviewing and hiring process of the new employees in Fort Worth, including training with exiting Midland employees, and subsequently, the release of the workforce who did not make the transition.

Terri was instrumental in the selection, implementation and successful rollout of Successfactors as an SAP applicant tracking system (ATS) in 2013, adding onboarding in 2019, and total conversion to Workday in 2020 for HRIS, recruiting and onboarding.

Terri is a 2023 Texas qualified Mediator and has over 20 years previous experience in negotiations and meditations as a company representative. She now offers mediation services for business and employee disputes throughout Texas and New Mexico as part of her consulting practice.

Terri’s talent for making sure all business programs run smoothly begins with her ability to relate to the needs of the company as well as the needs of the employee. One of the most beneficial aspects of navigating changes in how Human Resources is used and applied is that it encourages finding a better fit for each position within your company, no matter the number of employees.
