Organizational Commitment, Meaning of Work, Social Responsibility, and Social Exchange Relationships Among Different Generations
Organizational commitment is a topic that is widely discussed. Issues related to meaning of work, social responsibility, social exchange relationship (leader-member exchange, perceived organizational support), and the different generation gaps among employees are crucial in the new millennium. Respondents consisted of 140 employees of the Kubang Pasu District Office. It shows that the relationship was significant between perceived organizational support and significant difference between baby boomers and Gen Y with organizational commitment among employees. The findings show that future researchers and practitioners need to focus on improving the relationship between employer and employees, the quality of work and generation gaps in the organization accordingly.
