It's the same here in America. "Staff" is the word we use in everyday speech. "Personnel", on the other hand, is very formal; I see it on signs more often than I hear it spoken. But the two words mean the same thing.

In the UK all workers would be referred to as staff or employees. Hope this helps

In London it's normal to use "staff" for any level. "Personnel" sounds very formal, I never heard it in spoken language. It's also quite common to talk about "employees".
