Deloitte Millennial Model
An Approach to Gen Y Readiness
The Challenge
The writing is on the wall that the ederal workorce willsoon undergo a transormation. First, the Baby Boomerswill rapidly begin leaving the Civil Service as 40 percent othe ederal workorce is slated to retire within the next veyears, according to the Oce o Personnel Management.Meanwhile, a 2009 report published by the non-protPartnership or Public Service predicts that the FederalGovernment will make nearly 273,000 hires in mission-critical elds by the year 2012, adding to the magnitudeand diculty o the imminent ederal workorce transition.
 This looming talent crisis is oten described as a tsunamiheaded towards the U.S. Government, threatening to washaway critical institutional knowledge and manpower. TheFederal Government already has a grayer workorce thanthe private sector – workers over age 40 represent 74percent o ederal sta, while those under 30 represent just eight percent. Comparatively, in the private sector,25 percent o workers are under the age o 30.
With asignicant percentage o the ederal workorce alreadynearing retirement, now is the time to capitalize onopportunities to recruit, develop and retain top talent romthe younger generations.

Generation Y – reerring to people born between thelate 1970s and the early 2000s, who are also knownas “Millennials”
– is the largest young generation romwhich the Federal Government can and should recruit.But recruiting, retaining and developing this generation issomething that the government has had diculty doingusing current methods and practices. Consequently,government aces two linked challenges: dealing with theretirement o the Baby Boomers and updating its practicesto attract their replacements.
