English term or phrase: negative number of employees
Texte sur le E-Business
A study by Harvard Business School in the late 1980’s determined that, based on cumulative headcount savings for information technology projects, some US Corporations now have a negative number of employees.

negative number of employees = un nombre d’employés inférieur aux besoins ???

nombre nul d'employés / nombre décroissant d'employés

Due to the development of IT projects, there has been a cumulative increase in having less employees. Nombreuses sont donc les sociétés à avoir désormais un nombre important d'employés sous contrat par opposition aux employés embauchés à temps plein. Certaines sociétés US ont uniquement des employés sous contrat et affiche donc un effectif de zéro. Je te suggère donc un nombre nul d'employé ou un nombre décroissant d'employés.
J'espère que cette explication t'aidera
