A new report by the Office of Personnel Management suggests the federal government is doing a better job of recruiting a new generation of workers than retaining them.
It's an 80 million-strong generation, made up of people born over the last 30 years or so. Millennials outnumber Baby Boomers, but some say it's a generation of potential workforce members that's unaware of opportunities in federal government.

They're entitled, narcissistic, "free spirits," who chafe at the confines of ordinary desk work. They grew up in the era of Little League trophies for everyone, are tied to their smartphones and live out much of their lives on Facebook. At least that's what some of you think about millennials. We're talking Generation Y in today's guest column. Even if you're not part of the under-30 crowd, we bet you have an opinion.
The typical workplace is made up of four generations with different learning and communication styles, different work-life balance needs, and different preferences in how their contributions are recognized. Dr. Bonni Yordi tells us about a new study on what can lead to a more effective organization.
