Our History

Next Level began in 1968 as a Manpower Franchise by Ron Dorau. Ron’s son, John joined the business in 1986 and worked for his father until Ron’s passing in 1998. John purchased the family business and ran it until 2009, when he sold it back to Manpower Corporate.

In 2009 John launched Next Level Staffing along with two of his key employees, Paul Ladson and Shannon Jaskolski. Shannon had been hired as a staffing specialist in 2002 and rose to Vice President of staffing at the time of the transition. Paul started in 2003 as Vice President of Professional Services and remains in that position today.

Today, Paul and Shannon run the day to day operations of their respective divisions while John remains President and oversees the company.

Together they have over 62 years in the staffing business supporting the Southeastern Wisconsin area.
