What is the difference between collective - staff - personnel?

Would my sentence work?
I needed to strike a balance in our collective/staff/personnel?

Once again, I'm going to compare this to Army. Every army has personnel. In a single army basement or unit there is staff.

Collective can be about everything. A loose group of farmers deciding who grows what, or a group of village people arranging their lives so that one is a smith and another is a fisherman.

In a collective no one is necessarily a boss. Talking about staff and personnel, there's always some hierarchy.
