Entry of Generation Y (Gen Y) employees into the workforce has challenged the conventional managerial practices in organizations. Characteristics of Gen Y are in sharp contrast with the way public sector organizations function. Gen Y is fast, independent, and desires flexible work environment. Public sector organizations, on the other hand, are mostly bound by rigid rules and regulations laid down by the government. This study investigates the differing work values, workplace behaviors, and job attitudes of Gen Y working in public sector organizations. Results indicate that Indian Gen Y employed in the public sector give more importance to extrinsic and power/prestige work values, and their intention to leave the organization is not correlated to commitment.
