It is evident from research that Generation-Y constitutes a large proportion in the work force across the globe and hence it is a great challenge to organisations to attract and retain their Gen-Y employees. Various studies have highlighted that the knowledge of organisational commitment is crucial to organisations in developing their long-term performance and growth. This study aims to explore the determinants of organisational commitment among the Generation-Y who are employed in Malaysian SMEs (Johor Baharu, Selangor and KualaLumpur). The data was collected from 200 Gen-Y employees. Variables such as pay and benefits, training, leadership style, organisational culture and job satisfaction using multiple regression revealed that all variables had significant relationship with organisational commitment. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed based on the findings. The study also highlighted recommendations for future research.
