Attracting new graduates and other young talent is essential for any organization that needs to stay current, keep expenses in line, and replace older staff as they leave the workforce. But far too many businesses struggle to attract and retain young workers. Government agencies, in particular, are finding it difficult to hire young employees—just 7 percent of federal workers are thirty years old or under, compared to 36 percent of the workforce overall.

Hiring employees under 30 (often referred to as millennials) helps your organization acquire new skillsets, keep employee expenses down, and stay on top of important new technologies. But attracting younger workers to your company requires a different approach to recruiting. Here’s what you need to know about hiring and keeping these talented employees.
