A common language is critical in today’s staffing world. A lack of common definitions can cause communication problems between your organization’s hiring professionals and your staffing vendor. In the 21st century, staffing spans a range of industries and continents, so establishing a singular “lingo” helps clarify needs and services between diverse staffing audiences – employers, candidates, employees, and staffing providers.
