Staffing usually refers to the process of recruiting, hiring, orientating, retaining and firing employees. Staffing is predominately a Human Resources (HR) term. A lot of companies have human resources staff to take care of contracts, grievances and work related policies that are always stipulated in employees' contracts.

A staffing company deals with the background checks and testing of employees, taking a commission of the wages earned by workers they send to outside companies. Sometimes the staffing company can obtain something that is called a ‘finder's fee’ from the company that hires an employee on a full time basis.

An HR person who is responsible not only for his or her staff but also for staffing needs to evaluate the needs of the company as a whole, as well as particular departments. There are also other aspects to consider with this feature, including understaffing and overstaffing which can hurt a company at critical moments.

The main objective is always to find a balance, where the productivity of a department is not hampered when one person calls in sick or is off for a significant amount of time.

When staffing a company, a lot goes into the recruitment process which is a time consuming and rigorous process which begins with an advertisement for the role.

"Staffing is the process of acquiring, deploying, and retaining a workforce of sufficient quantity and quality to create positive impacts on the organization's effectiveness."
staffing is a process that involves knowing what mix of skills and knowledge a company needs, discovering and practicing the best recruiting, using talent where it can be most effective, and making sure that talent (namely the workers) wants to stay and work toward the organization's goals.
