"Staff" is a word that means "employees" or "workers". People usually use the word "staff" when they're talking in general about the entire group of people who work somewhere:

The staff there is super friendly and helpful.

"Employees" is more often used when you're speaking from the perspective of the boss:

One of the staff members at my gym asked me out yesterday.
