Staffing is all about hiring the right people with the right skills at the right time. Making sure you hire well is so important. Committed, motivated, qualified employees help your organization achieve its purpose. You cannot afford to be short-staffed.  Limited financial resources mean that hiring mistakes can be a huge financial burden.
