1. Executive Summary

Staffing is a process of recruiting, selecting and hiring new employees. The policy must be to attract best of the talent across the globe. The organization has to use right recruitment, selection, orientation and training strategy to develop a talented pool of human resources. . According to the summit -nation.com effective staffing system consists of five steps:
1. Painting a picture of the ideal candidate
2. Developing a cadre of qualified candidates
3. Screening the candidates
4. Interviewing and checking references
5. Making the hiring decision
http://www.summit-national.com/pdfs/creating_a_staffing_system.pdf.

The staffing plan is necessary so that the HR department fully understands the requirements for the team needed to meet this projects' agreed deliverables. The staffing plan will detail the criteria, selection and hiring process for the new resources. HR must be provided the necessary information to staff the project team with appropriate individuals at an acceptable cost.

The goals of the staffing plan are to meet specific time, cost and quality objectives; the result must be a qualified and appropriately skilled project team in place for the start of the project. The coordination of this effort in a documented staffing plan is the most efficient medium with which to meet this target. Also, the correct and adequate staffing of a project from the outset is clearly a major contributory factor in the success or failure of most projects. More and more companies have noticed that good staffing planning can increase productivity and reduce operational costs because of lower turnover rates and reduced transition costs.

2. Presentation on job analysis
Job Analysis is a process to establish and document the 'job relatedness' of employment procedures such as training, selection, compensation, and performance appraisal.
