Can someone please mention the difference between Recruitment and Staffing, since both these words are used interchangeably but there is a meaning for each of them, as per my thinking.

Hi amarjeet,

Recruitment -  Hiring Talent for the organisation , although once a subset of staffing , now seen more as a seperate entity.

Staffing - Broader scope , includes forecasting of manpower , strategising , manpower planning etc and host of other activities.

Recruitment includes sourcing and means hiring people to fill any vacant position in the company. Staffing is managing your existing manpower; reallocating and relocating your people as per the need of the company, assignment and project.

Hi amarjeet,

Recruitment means hiring candidates for the present and(or) future vacancies in your organization. Recruitment may be done from various sources via advertisements, job portals, consultants, employee references etc.

Staffing means fitting the right candidte at the right job. It includes matching of skills and knowledge of the employees with the requirements of the job, i.e. Job specification and Job description. Staffing is next step after recruitment and selection and may be on the basis of performance in various tests, interview etc.
