The U.S. demand for labor is expected to outstrip the U.S. labor supply as members of the Baby Boomer generation reach the full retirement age of 65. This research study examines the question: Does the relationship between organizational commitment, job satisfaction, and turnover intention vary with generational differences of the workforce? This research provides insight into these relationships and the generational differences of the workforce. The turnover intentions of employees are a clear indicator of the organization's ability to retain its workforce. An organization's ability to understand these relationships provides it with the information needed to try and retain its employee base.
