What is it about?

The current study aimed to analyse work fulfilment as mediators and age among Generation Y (Gen Y) as moderators of the relationship between task and knowledge characteristics and employee retention based on self-determination theory (SDT). Data were collected from 153 Gen Y employees in Klang Valley, Malaysia and analysed using partial least squares (PLS).

Why is it important?

Job characteristics are considered a contributing factor for the retention of employees at work, but the mechanism behind this relationship remains unclear.


My research interests span both strategic human resource management, industrial organisational (IO) psychology and humanistic management. Much of my work has been on improving the employee performance regarding attitudes and behaviours.
