Explanation:
(S) stand for "Sub-", and BU for "Business Units".

In French, you find "Business Unit" untranslated in numerous economic webpages and texts.

However, you can replace it by "division" or "département" if you like, so that you can translate "the staff of all (S)BUs" by: "le personnel de toutes les divisions et sous-divisions"

  -> Merci Agnès ! Entièrement d'accord avec vous, c'est bien pour cela que j'en ai fait mention, mais ayant fréquenté les milieux économiques plusieurs années, je peux vous assurer qu'il faut lutter bec et ongle contre le franglais qui "fait si bien"...
