Background: Generation Y also known as Gen Y, Millennials or Echo Boomers are the demographic cohort who were generally born in the 80s and 90s as demographers and researchers were incoherent with regards to this cohort’s start or end dates. This generation is known as having high comfort level with technology, highly entrepreneurial, global and creative. However, they were also known as having shorter attention span, demanding, materialistic and would normally opt for more transient and varied works. Therefore, Gen Y are regarded as job hoppers that require careful attention by organizations in order to control the turnover rate. Hence, this study aims to identify the perceptions of Gen Y in terms of their work environment and work values, subsequently determining the effects of those factors towards their turnover intention. Using a sample of eighty young workers of a microcredit company in Malaysia, this study surveyed Gen Yers’ perceived work environment (i.e. recognition, work itself, opportunities for promotions and professional advancement, responsibility, good feelings about organization, clarity of mission, relationship with co-workers, effective supervisor, and presence of core values) and perceived work values (ambition, social, optimism, variety, motivation, finance, internet and social media, and flexibility). Results indicated that work environment that consist of recognition, promotion, and good feelings as well as work values of ambition, motivation, and flexibility were the factors that significantly affecting Gen Yers’ intention to leave their current employment. This study shall be made reference by practitioners in better managing their employees especially in promoting and retaining jobs of their young talented workers.
Key words: Generation Y, Millennials, Work Environment, Work Value, Turnover.
