Over the years, there is a growing attention on generational differences and work attitudes among academician and practitioners. Researchers have investigated generational differences on organizational commitment, job satisfaction and turnover intention, yet the issue concerning generational differences on these work attitudes is still debatable. Hence, this article reviews the past studies concerning generational differences and their work-related attitudes in the period of fifteen years. Based on the review, we found that younger generation tends to have lower overall commitment, affective commitment as well as normative commitment compared to older generations. We also found a decrease in job satisfaction and a noticeable upward trend in turnover intention among younger generations. The review also found that generational differences and work-related attitudes also vary across different context of research setting.
