Here are some strategies for employers in smaller tourism and event companies that wonder how they can compete with bigger giants for their dream talent and approach the fluctuations in staffing needs. We also look at the Millennial workforce and what's coming after their generation.

Quotes from this episode:
"When I started at Virgin Atlantic...they paid the lowest in the whole of the airline industry. The offices were the crummiest offices you could ever imagine and yet they got the best people and those people would give everything to that airline."
"We have to accept now there are five different generations in this workforce."
