Investigating the correlation and nexus between staffing and employee performance. Staffing involves attracting more quality job-seekers and selecting the creme de la crème to achieve organizational competitiveness. Resource-based View Theory and the theory of Equity Theory were adopted as frameworks. More so, the research employs a cross-section correlational method as the research design, with data analysis methods ranging from analysis of frequency to analysis of descriptive data and multiple regression analysis. The paper used a simple random sampling technique to select respondents for the research directly. As such, 374 respondents from both the academic and non-academic staff of Olabisi Onabanjo University were selected. Primary data had been collected through a questionnaire, while secondary data had been collected through a review of published literature. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 25.0. Findings revealed that all independent variables have a notable positive relationship with employee performance. The research thus recommended that other staffing practices not discussed in this research should be carried out in line with employee performance.
