The main thrust of the study is to investigate the factors that motivate millennials at their workplace. The objectives of the research are to determine the relationship between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation that influence employee retention among millennials. The sample for the study consists of millennial employees who are working in the city of Johor Bahru,Malaysia. A quantitative survey approach will be used in this research and questionnaire will be designed and distributed to the millennial workers in Johor Bahru. It is proposed that extrinsic motivation (i.e. compensation, career development, workload, work environment) and intrinsic motivation (i.e. sense of purpose, challenging work, freedom to choose and recognition) will be used as predictors to test against employee retention as the outcome variable of this research.
