- Currently, the workforce is dominated by generation X and generation Y. Generation Y or the millennial generation will dominate the workforce in the next few years. Changes in the social environment can exert an impact on the changing value systems that exist in each generation. Such modifications cause different characteristics to emerge among generations, especially in the workplace. The present issue pertaining to employees belonging to the millennial generation concerns their problems about remaining in a company for extended periods. The decision to stay with a company implies an organizational commitment and the millennials exhibit a lower level of loyalty to a single company than employees belonging to the previous generation. Existing studies elucidate that the perception of support from the organization is a factor that increases employee commitment, especially in the affective aspect. This study aims to explore whether the affective commitment of millennial employees is still influenced by the perception of organizational support (POS) and to ascertain whether the psychological contract breach (PCB) plays a role in moderating this relationship. Using the convenience sampling method, questionnaires were disseminated online and offline to millennial employees aged between 22 and 35. The obtained results revealed that POS was significantly correlated with affective commitment while the PCB displayed an insignificant moderating role in the relationship between POS and affective commitment in millennial employees. This outcome clarified that the level of affective commitment increases if millennials perceive the organization support to be higher. Further, the organization must also understand the manner in which to strengthen this relationship by considering the different needs of the millennial generation of employees.
