Presently working in a 'rural' sme attracting and retaining younger staff is an issue. Understanding what the expectation of milennials are has helped us to present a traditional job decription to reflect more current demands of younger people starting on their career path.Over the last six months we have encouraged younger staff to be empowered in their roles and to embrace new technology to imprve their roles and add value to the business. We have encouraged experimenting with facebook for marketing and encouraged tweets to be used to communicate technology advances and exhibition attendence in the company. Reading articles like this one and engaging with the imagination and aspirsations of milenials  has allowed our more traditional views of running a business and managing a career path for our staff to become more current.
