Of all the functions in an organization, staffing is among the most vital. Even in a difficult economic climate, the battle between companies for top talent rages on -- and the winners of that battle will position themselves for future success. As competition increases, recruiting and keeping great people is becoming the single most reliable way to create sustainable competitive advantage. Economic and demographic realities -- from corporate cost cutting to the aging of the workforce -- present serious challenges to today's human resources professionals. On Staffing addresses those challenges by compiling concise, intelligent essays from today's HR thought leaders. Insightful, thought provoking, and full of innovative ideas, this practical compendium offers the knowledge and expertise HR specialists need to lead their companies to the forefront of hiring practice. The fifty short, informative articles included in On Staffing cover every aspect of the human capital cycle, from acquisition and development to management and retention. All are written by staffing specialists from leading organizations that have been recognized for their leadership in the specific areas of staffing and human capital management.

As HR leaders know, successful staffing is about much more than just hiring qualified people. It's about hiring the right qualified people -- and keeping them. To help you do that, On Staffing covers the new and innovative business initiatives managers from leading companies are using to assess the potential of people and place them in positions in which they can maximize that potential. It analyzes the practices that work, offers strategies for dealing with rapidly changing business and hiring environments, and helps HR leaders prepare for the changes and challenges to come. On Staffing offers a comprehensive critical analysis of every aspect of the staffing process, because hiring isn't just an important part of business -- it is business.
