All Saints and Ocado are among the retailers to acknowledge that the technology an organisation uses for internal operations is an important aspect in recruiting and retaining good staff, but how widespread is this viewpoint across the retail industry?

In the latest Retail Ramble podcast, Essential Retail's editor, Ben Sillitoe, and deputy editor, Caroline Baldwin, discuss some of the tech issues retailers need to consider when it comes to attracting the younger generation to work in retail.

Also, the podcast considers "the millennial", and what defines their behaviour. People who were born between 1980 and 2000 will soon make up the majority of the workforce, so it will be important for their tech needs to be met.
