Scott Scully, CEO of Abstrakt Marketing Group, said companies have to establish an environment that attracts and retains talent. Millennials value philanthropy, Scully said, so Abstrakt matches employee donations and takes part in community charity events.

So far this year, 30 people have been promoted at the firm and 18 people will be hired at the end of the month, Scully said.
