A recent report from the Partnership for Public Service found that federal employees under age 30 are quitting at a higher rate than their older counterparts.

  • The 8.5% attrition rate of young federal employees is not a cause for alarm, said Oma Seddiq, politics reporter for Insider, but is significantly higher than the rate for older workers, 4%.
  • Low pay is a likely reason driving this trend, said Seddiq. Employees could also be leaving for promotion opportunities, more flexibility, work-life balance or to return to school.
  • Seddiq said federal managers should pay attention to the younger cohort and look into the situation further.
