Dear Sangeetha,
Staffing involves finding people, who may be hired or already working for the company (organization) or may be working for competing companies.
where as Recruitment refers to the process of finding possible candidates for a job or function. Now-a-Days these activities is being undertaken by staffing agencies because it is very difficult for the HR managers to find the rigt kind of people at the rigt point of time , so what they do is they give some money to these staffing agencies to carry on the recruiting work on behalf of their client or the organisation.

Dear Sanjeetha,

What Is Recruitment?

Recruitment is a constant, year-round process of keeping your organization's name in front of people. Before looking at some basic steps of recruitment process, let's define what we mean by recruitment. For many people, the distinction between public relations, marketing and recruitment is unclear.

Public Relations is the art of helping the public to understand what your organization does and encouraging the public to regard your efforts positively. It is designed to influence as large a segment of the public as possible at any one time with the message you have selected to share.

Marketing involves determining the needs of select or target audiences and then designing goods, services and opportunities that respond to those needs. It relies heavily on designing the organization's offering terms of the target markets' needs and desires, and on using effective pricing, communication, and distribution to inform, motivate and service the markets.

Recruitment is the act of identifying groups and individuals for service, and then actually asking them to volunteer.

While public relations, marketing and recruitment are not synonymous; they do support each other and benefit the overall mission of your organization. When the public knows the name and service provided by your organization, people are more likely to remember your organization when they think about serving. When employed properly, marketing strategies can help target your recruitment campaign to the people who are most likely to say, "Yes!"

Steps in Recruitment

Finding volunteers to meet your agency or organization needs requires careful thinking and planning before an appeal is made. Prior to actually going out and asking people to help, you must:

Clearly identify volunteer needs and position descriptions

Know what you have to offer - the "costs" and benefits of volunteering Plan a recruitment approach based on volunteer needs and position descriptions

Implement your plan

Once groundwork has been laid, you are ready to implement your plan and make the appeal.

What is staffing?

staffing is from employee joining to exit process

Warm Regards
