Human Resources Management
What is the definition of staffing? Staffing is the process by which an organization creates a pool of applicants and makes a choice from that pool to provide the right person at the right place at the right time to increase the organizational effectiveness.

Businesses that are ready to take their company to the next emulous level may want to initiate an extensive strategy approach to human resources. Strategic initiatives might include: networking with external business consultants who know a multitude of people seeking work, and even better, are often very familiar with the soft skills, attitudes, work ethics and hidden abilities these candidates possess, establishing opportunities to grow the company's own talent through internships, mentoring and other work experiences for developing professionals, examining and re-working company job descriptions to focus on essential skills and training staff and managers on being successful in a diverse environment.
Equal Opportunity Laws plays a big role in the staffing process. There are many different EOE laws such as, Equal Pay act, Civil Rights Act, Age discrimination, Rehabilitation Act, Vietnam Era, Pregnancy Discrimination, Immigration Reform and Control Act, American with Disability Act, Civil Rights Act, and Family and Medical Leave Act. Without these laws, it wouldn’t be fair to those who are categorized under these categories to not be able to hold down a job because of the setbacks of certain health issues.
I believe that the correct staffing methods create a relationship among different cultures, and bring an understanding of dissimilar people. The H.R Department is in charge of this strenuous, but important job that is essential to a company’s growth and assimilation into the diverse work force as we know it.
