Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What does NEXTAFF offer that other staffing companies don’t?
Hiring and screening employees is costly — even more so when the wrong candidates are hired. 

NEXTAFF helps companies reduce these costs by serving as an extension of a company’s HR department, working to find employees that are an excellent match for the job. 

I have zero staffing industry experience. How can I be sure I’ll be able to successfully recruit new talent for clients? 
Thanks to our proprietary X-FACTOR system, our astounding success rate has been statistically proven to outperform our competitors’ recruiting methods by up to 100%! 

I want to own a franchise that I can build into an empire. How can franchising with NEXTAFF help me focus on growing a successful business?
Our back office handles payroll and provides support for over 1,000 field employees. 

Not only does this allow you to concentrate on building a successful business empire, but it also gives you a clear advantage over competitor staffing agencies in your area!


"Owning a NEXTAFF Office has been an amazing adventure for us. Being a business owner has been a dream come true for us because it has given us the opportunity to be both full-time moms who are actively involved in our children’s schools and extra-curricular activities and business owners." Beth K and Rachel R, Raleigh Franchisee
"Ground floor opportunity, support, new franchise, support, working on my business and not in my business, were all the words that were important to me when choosing a staffing franchise, but the most important word to me was support. As I prepare now to continue my recruiting efforts for my largest client who has increased their order fourfold since they started with us, I am grateful for the support of our corporate office. As an experienced operations manager, I understand workflow, so, once I gained this job order, I knew I could ensure we did an excellent job with the work. However, as a non-staffing professional, I needed the support necessary to recruit such a large number of employees in a relatively short period of time. Our Support Office was right there to lend me a hand, and for that I am grateful. I have never felt like just a number at Nextaff, I have always felt like I was part of a family." Buffy Butler, Miami Franchisee
"I want to reach out to you and thank you and your firm for helping Abacus Search with a conversion model to do contract staffing. The Nextaff model has helped us grow significantly during the last year. Abacus Search historically specializes in Direct Hire Recruitment. As a firm, we were looking to broaden our services and diversify into the Contract Staffing world. After looking at the time and cost involved with funding and handling the payroll, taxes, workers compensation, unemployment insurance, handling unemployment claims and more, we decided we needed to look at an outsourced model. "Nextaff has been our choice for growing our firm and entering into the Contract Staffing market. We have experienced exceptional service and the ability to manage our account online has been very valuable. Nextaff also provides more reports than you would ever need through their on-line system. I am very pleased with our decision to partner with Nextaff as our outsourced provider to handle our Contract Staffing needs. This has given our Consultants a whole new service to provide our clients which has become very valuable to the growth of our firm." Mike Blair, Nextaff Abacus Conversion Franchisee
"Nextaff as a franchisor provides excellent back office support for franchisees like myself eliminating the need for us to be an expert in areas that do not add to our bottom line. I can sincerely say that I am thrilled with my business, which is ideal for those of us who are tired of working for someone else, this business model really allows you to take control of your future." John Snellings, Denver Franchisee (former - sold in 2009)
