If Jack made 10 phones calls, we can write: Calls made by Jack: 10

If the total phone calls made by everybody of a company is 1000, can we write: Calls made by the whole company: 1000 ?

I feel like that the whole company is not proper here but I can't say why and don't known how to say it.

  • Why not simply say "total calls: 1000"? Feb 5, 2018 at 7:20
  • Yes I can, but I wonder the answer. Feb 5, 2018 at 8:00

"total" is a fine word to use:

  • Total calls: 1000
  • Total amount of calls made by the entire company: 1000
  • What I am not sure is "the whole/entire company". I think the calls are made by people of the company, rather than the company itself? Feb 5, 2018 at 9:35
  • PS: Is "entire" better than "whole" in this context? why? Feb 5, 2018 at 9:36
  • @TimothyZhang When you say "whole/entire company" you refer to the people working there and not to the building. Feb 5, 2018 at 12:54
