What are the differences between staffing in the private and public sectors?
Public sector means that the organization or enterprise is owned and managed by the government and private sector means that the organization or enterprise is owned and controlled by an individual. There are many differences between staffing in the public sector and staffing in the private sector. In the public sector, merit principals and civil service laws and regulations are implemented, all job vacancies are available to everyone and announced with the content of the selection process, open applications to the public which brings a high number of applicants, must test applicants only for KSAOs that are job related, and the applicants have the rights to appeal the hiring process, testing process, or test content and method. In addition, the main goal of the public sector is serving people. The requirements that must apply in the public sector make the differences between the public and private sector because all the requirements mentioned above do not apply to the private sector. Private companies follow the law but are not controlled by the government in which companies have more flexibility and less limitations when recruiting and selecting an applicant. Moreover, the aim of private sector is making profit.
