Recruit means you try to find the potential employee (but sometimes people call themselves recruiters even if they didn't try to find the people). Selecting should be the next step--to choose an employee. Hiring is actually intiating them into the company, getting through all formalities. Staffing means you train them & give them jobs. Employ should be the same. But people often associate staffing with getting the right number of people, making sure you're not short. I've also heard people say when they "take care of staffing" they take care of the people who already work there. I think while employing is usually just related to getting the people started, staffing can relate to resigning & other things related to workers leaving.
