Abstract/Summary

The millennials are now making an impactful shift into employment and are expected to fulfill a crucial role in today's workforce. However, it has been a challenge to engage these millennials in a working environment molded by several social and motivational factors. To have a better understanding of the millennial profile, the focal point of the current research attempted to explore the effects of millenials' organizational commitment, and gender bias against the millennials on their work performance. Subjects included 26 Filipino millennial employees aged 18 to 28 years from various industries under sales and marketing roles, who have resided in the Philippines for at least ten years. Data collection was done through personal interviews, and the narratives from these interviews were subjected to thematic analysis. Findings concluded that when employees feel a sense of connection between themselves and the company they work in, they increase the quality of their work. On the other hand, being discriminated subsequently hinders millennials' productivity, thus causing their overall work performance to decline.
