Those "old qualities" you mention speak to basic human needs. I don't see them falling out of favor.

I have to agree with Kerry Ann. These generalizations about what Millennials prefer are about as on-target as the generalization that they're the generation that is the most social and mobile savvy. It may be true, very generally speaking, but I know 50+ people who could IM, Facebook post and Tweet circles around non-social 20 somethings. Why not present this as "How to attract mobile- and social-savvy employees."

re: How To Attract Young Talent: 10 Tips
Work locale (are you in a desirable city or do you allow telecommuting?) and opportunity to advance/rotate among slots are two issues that come up frequently when I talk to CIOs on this topic. BYOD is almost a given now. Haven't heard much on gamification. Re the open spaces and collaboration, one senior IT leader at Cisco told me her summer interns literally took down the walls between their cubes so they could work better together. I'm betting my generation X peers would not have done that.
