Staffing is the function of employee recruitment, screening and selection performed within an organization or business to fill job openings. Other areas of employment which may be handled by a staffing department are orientation, training, retention and termination. This function is sometimes handled outside of an organization by using contractors at various levels of the staffing process. Small organizations may handle staffing on a case-by-case basis, while larger organizations may go through multiple staffing cycles during a single year. Organizations of any size may use staffing to acquire temporary or permanent employees. Some related terms and departments include human resources, personnel management and hiring.
