Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Nextaff franchise.
Cary Daniel and James Windmiller opened their first staffing agency in 1998. By 2004, the co-founders decided to offer Nextaff franchises, but Cary and James were not ready to stop.
The duo opened Nextaff soon after by using lessons they had learned from the first company. In 2016, James and Cary joined forces with Tim and Terry Malone. Tim and Terry own Malone Workforce Solutions, and the two companies now share information systems to help meet staffing needs.
Nextaff attempts to help companies meet their staffing demands by matching profiles of its most successful employees with job seekers.
Nextaff has opened over 20 franchises since beginning to franchise.
Why You May Want to Start a Nextaff Franchise
Nextaff uses what they call the X-Factor method to help companies find new hires. Instead of just sending the company a massive amount of resumes, Nextaff looks at key indicators. Nextaff takes the profile of the company's most successful employees and figures out exactly what the company is looking for. Then, Nextaff matches the characteristics in the profile to job seekers.
Nextaff franchisees do not necessarily need to have experience in the staffing industry. However, it is generally good to have experience in the IT or healthcare industries if the franchisee wants to open one of those divisions. It is also a good idea for the franchisee to have business-to-business sales experience. Anyone who wants to go home feeling like they have made a difference in a person's life may find Nextaff to be a good fit.
