Generation Y: Their Call to Service Should Be Your Call to Action - A Federal Government Perspective
Tap this generation's skills and sense of responsibility
The results of our latest survey reveal both similarities and some marked differences between Gen Yers in the federal government and their counterparts in the private sector. They are all enthusiastic, engaged and eager to make a meaningful contribution.
However, the respondents to our survey who currently work in the public sector are:
- Influenced by different factors in their choice of employers
- Always on the move
- Not only motivated by money
What are the implications of these findings for federal agencies, particularly at a time when government action is viewed as a key to the economy’s turnaround? A closer look reveals opportunities to strategically enhance the workforces – especially the Gen Y segment:
- Consider Gen Y in your human resources modernization and workforce planning initiatives.
- Reinforce your “brand” – both externally and internally
- Use talent management strategies to integrate Gen Yers into your workforce and boost organizational performance
- Embrace diversity of thought
Government agencies currently have important advantages when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent – both from the commercial sector and straight out of college. Federal employers that use this advantage are likely to achieve significant strides toward becoming the government of tomorrow.
