Student response


According to our book Staffing Organizations, staffing is defined as “the process of acquiring, deploying, and retaining a workforce of sufficient quantity and quality to create positive impacts on the organization’s effectiveness” (Heneman, 2019). In public sector jobs such as teachers, police officers, firefighters, companies advertise open announcements of all vacancies, test applicants only for KSAOs that are directly job-related, and lastly, in a public sector job market, the applicant has the ability to appeal the hiring decision, testing process (Heneman, 2019).  However, in a private job sector, their employment is revenue driven, there are fewer legal barriers to the hiring and firing of employees, the company looks for employees that can bring more profits and forward momentum for their company. There is also greater mobility for moving from one job to another and up the corporate ladder. A significant difference between the private and the public sector staffing is public agencies are not subject to the market pressures, such as making a quarter or yearly revenue sales goals that are present in the private sector (Bjerke, 2014).
