I am having trouble getting data to pivot in my results

I have three tables
a WIP table, a Staff table, and an Engagement table.
the wip table is timesheet detail and we're trying to a total of how many hours each staff worked on each engagement. i've written the following query which returns the data needed

SELECT   TOP 100     E.ClientName AS Client, E.ClientPartner AS Partner, sum(W.WIPHours) AS Hours, S.LastName
FROM            tblEngagement E RIGHT JOIN
                         tblTranWIP AS W ON E.ContIndex = W.ContIndex CROSS JOIN
                         Staff AS S
GROUP BY E.ClientName, S.LastName, E.clientPartner

Sample Data

staff    hours    engagement
joe        5            A
steve    10          A
joe        20          B

Desired result

engagement      Joe      Steve
A                          5            10
B                          20          0
