As a management function, staffing, or human resource management, is the one that deals with the acquiring, training, appraising and compensation the staff that work for a business. Effective staffing management is crucial to the success of a business. Without the right staff, a business or organization may be unable to deal with any changes or anything new in an efficient and successful manner.

These principles are that all managers are human resource management, employees are very important and that human resource management is a matching process.

• All managers are human resource management.  The roles described above that are assigned to the human resource management function need to be taken into consideration by all managers. Employees look to a manager for advice and support. Therefore it is crucial that managers deal with the roles of acquiring, training, appraising and compensating staff on a personal and corporate level.
• Employees are important. Managers must always consider the fact that employees are far more important to the business than buildings or equipment. Unhappy staff creates a bad working environment which can have an extremely negative and long term effect on the business. Making sure that staff feel comfortable and supportive is essential for a successful business.
• Human resource management is a matching process. It is really important that the needs of the business match the needs of the employees. That is, the demands and objectives of the business as a whole reflect and represent the way that the employees feel. Employees will be proud of working for a business that supports the same ideas that they do.

The function of staffing as a management function is one that is essential to the successful running of a business. By adhering to a number of principles, human resource management can ensure happy staff and a good working environment.
