Elevating the employment experience and enriching people’s lives

Our Values

The Nextep Story

“I left a publicly traded PEO in 1997 with a dream of doing it differently.

My goal was to give my clients the best of both worlds: the benefits and state-of-the-art technology large companies offer as well as the personal service and flexibility smaller companies provide.

We’ve grown over the years, and we’ll continue to grow, but I’ve never lost sight of that dream. It’s still what I’m passionate about today.”

How We Do Business

We realize elevating employment experiences and enriching lives is a bold statement, but it serves as our compass. It drives every business decision we make, every phone call we answer, and every employee we hire.

Our Mission

Our mission at Nextep is simple: to provide exceptional service through a commitment to integrity, technology, and above all, our people.

Our Promise

Our promise is to make life easier. As a small business owner, HR manager, or employee, we want to make your day at work better.


We’re here to elevate the employment experience and enrich people’s lives. It’s the reason we come to work each and every day.


Fun, people-first, supportive — those are just a few of the words our people use to describe Nextep. We believe if you’re going to spend eight hours a day in an office, you should be proud of the work you do, have fun with the people you work with, and be celebrated for doing your job well. That’s why having an award-winning culture is a top priority for us!

“It doesn’t matter what department you are in, you have cheerleaders helping you achieve things you never thought possible. I owe so much to the people who have helped me grow and become what I am today. I am forever thankful.”
