What is Staffing?
Staffing is the process of hiring and managing employees. This includes recruiting employees, screening applicants, conducting interviews, and making hiring decisions. It also includes managing employee records, onboarding new employees, and providing training and development. Staffing also includes managing employee terminations and layoffs.
What are the different types of Staffing?
There are a variety of different types of staffing that can be used in order to fill a company’s human resources needs. The most common types are:
- Permanent Staffing – This is when a company hires a worker to fill a position permanently. The worker is usually hired after a rigorous interview process and is given a job offer that states the terms and conditions of employment.
- Temporary Staffing – This is when a company hires a worker to fill a position on a temporary basis. The worker is usually hired through a staffing agency and is given a job offer that states the terms and conditions of employment.
- Contract Staffing – This is when a company hires a worker to fill a position on a contract basis. The worker is usually hired through a staffing agency and is given a job offer that states the terms and conditions of employment. The contract usually lasts for a certain period of time, after which the worker is either released from their contract or offered a permanent position.
- Outsourcing – This is when a company hires a third party company to provide them with workers to fill a position. The third party company usually provides a wide range of workers, from entry-level to management-level.
What is the cost of staffing?
The average staffing cost varies depending on the position and the company. Hourly employees usually make between $7 and $15 an hour, while salaried employees usually make between $30,000 and $70,000 a year. The cost of benefits, such as health insurance, can add 30-50% to the salary of an employee. Employers also incur costs when they hire new employees. The average cost of recruiting a new employee is 1/3 of that employee’s annual salary. So, if an employee makes $50,000 a year, the cost of recruiting and hiring that employee would be $16,667.
