NLS Receives Another ‘Next Level’ Award

(Springfield, MO) – For the second time in three months, Next Level Solutions was honored by the business community in the city where the international company is headquartered.

At its inaugural ‘Best Places to Work’ luncheon, highlighting top businesses in the Southwest Missouri region, Biz 417Magazine named Next Level Solutions one of the Top 10 companies to work for in the greater Springfield area. The ranking was based on employee responses to a comprehensive survey, and a thorough assessment of an employer’s benefits, policies, practices and general information. 

The ‘Best Places to Work’ designation comes on the heels of NLS, in its first year of consideration, ranking first in the prestigious Springfield Business Journal’s Dynamic Dozen list of top companies this past May.

With close to half of its nearly 300employee work force based in Springfield, Missouri, Next Level Solutions’ employees gave NLS high marks for “offering an environment that is laid back, allows for collaboration, mentorship and teamwork, as well as being a workplace that values employees and promotes fun.”


NLS Co-Founder, Michael Smith, Managing Partner and COO, who leads the Springfield workforce, said from its founding three, short years ago,“NLS has worked hard to create a culture that celebrates success and emphasizes a positive employee experience. Across our workforce, we recognize that having employees who feel valued and engaged is critical to retaining current talent, as well as attracting new staff. We are constantly evaluating how we can evolve as an employer to provide a positive workplace for our employees. NLS is committed to its people because they make us ‘who we are’ and are a big reason behind our success.”

Haley Armstrong, Recruiting Coordinator at NextLevel Solutions, said being named one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ “only solidifies NLS as an awesome company to work for. Employee satisfaction really matters to us and it’s one of the core values we highlight with each new employee. We mean it when we say, love where you work because that’s our goal.”

“NLS encourages a culture of collaborative working and learning, meaning that regardless of job title or position, everyone is willing to help one another. A big focus at NLS is work/life balance, I feel that they really try to foster this idea every day. Every company says they have an open-door policy, but at NLS I feel that really rings true. The managers are always accessible with their actual doors open when available. It is truly refreshing to work for a company that treats you like an adult and allows you to have control of your job path. It doesn't matter if you have been here a week or years, everyone at NLS is part of the family. I truly feel that this company everyday tries to live up to its motto: DO GOOD WORK!!”
