chown root.staff /path/share_topdir
chmod  2770 /path/share_topdir
with the setgid bit set the new files will belong to the staff group.

then is smb.conf
create mode = 0660
force create mode =  0660
directory mode = 2770
force directory mode = 2770
for that share

If the setgid bit trick does not work (it should) then use
force group = staff
in smb.conf
