Staffing remains somewhat of an unknown industry for many people. This is because it is primarily business to business instead of business to consumer. However if you have ever worked for a corporate business that employs a lot of people, you’ve probably heard of staffing companies.
According Staffing Organizations. USA: McGraw-Hill, Staffing is the process of hiring, positioning and overseeing employees in an organisation.
Basically, “staffing” and the staffing industry exist because companies need help filling positions within their company. For example, a tech company needs to hire 3 new software developers. If they don’t have a strong internal acquisition team, they will need to consult with staffing companies. These firms will employ a number of recruiters who specialize in finding software developers and other tech workers.
