Staffing Managers handle every aspect of a company’s staffing needs. They are responsible for recruiting, training, and retaining employees, and they also fire employees when necessary. They combine both recruiting and human resource functions to fully serve their clients, namely, the company that hires them.
Staffing Managers manage job application channels, identify new talent, and screen applicants. Screening may include skills testing, background checks, or credit checks. They interview potential candidates, and hire qualified new employees. Staffing Managers maintain extensive networks and a large candidate pool in order to fill positions quickly, and with the most qualified talent.
In order to retain newly hired staff, Staffing Managers may design retention programs. In order to do this, they liaise with employees to discuss job satisfaction. They also research appropriate incentives and implement strategies to keep employees engaged. Additionally, Staffing Managers perform a variety of administrative duties, including writing and posting job descriptions, filling out paperwork, creating training materials, and keeping records of all applicants and new hires.
