NEXTAFF Annual Franchise Conference


NEXTAFF was founded in 2004 by Cary Daniel and James Windmiller.  After selling their local staffing offices in 2003, the partners decided to build a model that would help future staffing entrepreneurs avoid the same pitfalls they experienced in building their startup staffing business.

Since 2004, NEXTAFF has been fortunate to receive local and national recognition:

  • Ernst & Young, Entrepreneur of the Year, Midwest Finalist
  • Named the “Fastest Growing Human Resources Company” in America, by Inc. Magazine.
  • Inc. 500 (5 times)
  • Inc. 100
  • Ingram’s Fastest Growing Companies (7 times)
  • Ingram’s 40 Under 40 Leaders
  • Franchise 500
  • Franchise Business Review Top 50 Award
  • FBR Best Culture Award
  • FBR Top Satisfaction Award

Our Vision is to award 200 franchise locations within 10 years to a group of select franchise owners.

Our Mission is to be the #1 value in the staffing franchise sector.

Our Differentiators:

  1. Our proprietary X-FACTOR method of hiring quality talent.
  2. Our custom N>GAGE mobile app.
  3. All offices are independently owned and operated.


The greatest power in any business is people power. No matter how much potential your business has… no matter how good your product or service might be…the thing that will determine the success or failure of your business is the effort and the dedication of the people who make up your business “team”.


Since our founding in 2004, Nextaff has committed to the highest standards of corporate citizenship.  Our Core Values include Gratitude, Service, Growth, Dependability, Entrepreneurship, Execution and Enjoyment.  Nextaff connects thousands of people annually with employment opportunities, which makes a difference in the communities in which we live and work.  As a national company, we recognize the broad reach of our business practices and therefore are committed to the following areas:

Environment: We actively work towards reducing our environmental footprint by implementing sustainable practices in our processes. We strive to minimize our energy consumption, eliminate waste, and promote the use of renewable resources.

Ethics: We conduct our business with integrity, honesty, and transparency. We abide by all applicable laws and regulations and will not engage in any unethical practices such as bribery, corruption, or discrimination. We foster a culture of respect and inclusivity for all employees, customers, suppliers, and stakeholders.

Philanthropy: We actively engage in philanthropic activities that benefit the communities we operate in. We will continue to donate 10 percent of net franchise fees towards causes such as medical research, children’s safety, entrepreneurship, and poverty alleviation. We encourage our employees to volunteer their time and resources towards social causes that align with our values.

Economic: We strive to create value for our shareholders, while also taking into consideration the interests of all stakeholders such as employees, customers, suppliers, and the communities in which we operate. We promote fair trade practices and work toward creating a sustainable economic model that benefits all stakeholders.

Human Rights: We respect and uphold human rights in all our operations. We will not engage in any activities that violate human rights such as forced labor, child labor, or discrimination. We promote a safe and healthy working environment for our employees and will ensure that our suppliers adhere to the same standards.

We recognize that our actions have an impact beyond our immediate operations and will strive to create a positive impact in the world through our business practices. We will regularly review and update our policies and practices to ensure that we are living up to our pledge of corporate responsibility.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: At Nextaff, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to our success. We are committed to fostering a workplace that is inclusive and welcoming to people of all backgrounds. Our DEI policy is grounded in the following principles:

Diversity: We believe that our differences make us stronger. We are committed to building a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We will work to eliminate barriers to employment and advancement.

Equity: We believe that everyone deserves a fair and equal opportunity to succeed. We are committed to creating a workplace where everyone has the resources and support they need to thrive. We will work to eliminate bias in our hiring, promotion, and compensation practices and will ensure that everyone has access to the same opportunities for growth and development.

Inclusion: We believe that everyone should feel valued and respected. We are committed to creating a workplace where everyone feels welcome and included, regardless of their background or identity. We will work to create a culture of belonging where everyone feels empowered to bring their whole selves to work.

By following these principles, we believe we can create a workplace that is truly welcoming and inclusive to people of all backgrounds. As a franchise model with independently owned and operated offices, we also allow for the flexibility of our offices to refine and specify a DEI policy to their specific desires and objectives.
