the meaning of "staff(s)"
Could you please tell me the meaning of "staff(s)"?
I used the word to express "employee(s)", but a native speaker said to me, "native speakers never use the word as a meaning of "employee(s). It's a Japanized English."
I'm a little confused because my dictionary, Longman, has a meaning as "employee(s)" and the example sentence.
The entire staff has done an outstanding job this year.
Thank you very much.
Re: the meaning of "staff(s)"
It is used to refer to the employees of a company, not to a single employee:
The staff of the company were all supportive of the new management - All the members of staff/employees.
