Staffing Agency Moves Into Dallas to Boost Local Tech Talent

NEXTAFF is opening a location in North Dallas to offer staffing solutions to information technology businesses.

National talent acquisition agency NEXTAFF is aiming to bring people with the “it factor” to Dallas I.T. businesses. 

NEXTAFF—which dubs itself an “industry leader in identifying quality talent for businesses”—last week announced the opening of a new location in North Dallas. The new office, located at 17440 Dallas Parkway, will serve the surrounding area in offering staffing solutions to information technology businesses.

Founded in 1998, NEXTAFF uses its trademark “X-FACTOR” recruiting method in over 40 states nationwide. In combining various hiring methodologies, NEXTAFF says its proprietary model is designed to outperform a typical temp agency or HR department.

The problem most of NEXTAFF’s clients face is a lack of time, money, and understanding of how to find qualified candidates to fill their employment needs. This drains profits, and NEXTAFF aims to serve as the solution. They find the talent, build the plan to boost employee productivity, and let their clients focus on other areas of their business. 

Each NEXTAFF franchise location is locally owned and operated, giving clients the ability to work directly with local staffing professionals. Among the industries served are industrial, administrative, professional, information technology, and healthcare. 

The operation will be lead by Saumil Shah, who has more than two decades of information technology experience under his belt. Shah said NEXTAFF’s unique structure will be “truly beneficial” to the Dallas market, as the operating model creates success for both the franchise owner and its clients.

He intends to give the growing local tech world what it wants—access to quality talent. 

“I’m a strong believer of positive thinking in the workplace,” Shah said. “Throughout my career, I’ve worked to create strong teams and help employees improve their productivity while increasing their skillsets. Partnering with NEXTAFF gives me the ability to do this on a much larger scale.”

By 2026, CompTIA predicts the base of tech occupation employment (a subset of net tech employment) will grow by 10.2 percent in the DFW area.

“Dallas is growing, with new startups and businesses continuing to pop up,” Cary Daniel, co-founder and president of NEXTAFF, said in a statement. “This is a great time for NEXTAFF to enter the area.
