To calculate the tenure of a staff from entry date until now, you can apply below formulas.

Select a blank cell next to the entry date, for instance, C2, and enter this formula =DATEDIF(B2,NOW(),"M"), B2 is the entry date of the employee, and drag auto fill handle down to the cells you want to apply this formula. See screenshot:
doc employee tenure 1

If you want to calculate the tenure in years, you can apply this formula =DATEDIF(B2,NOW(),"Y"), see screenshot:
doc employee tenure 2

If you want to calculate the specific years and months of tenure, apply this formula =DATEDIF(B2,C2,"y") & " years, " & DATEDIF(B2,C2,"ym") & " months ", B2 is the entry date, and C2 is the leave date. See screenshot:
