Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide an understanding of Gen Y in India. A work values perspective is employed to establish the difference in work values of Gen Y from India and Gen Y from other countries. Further, gender-based differences in work values of Gen Y and differences in work values of Gen Y working in public and private sectors in India are explored. The results of these investigations provide a comprehensive understanding of the Indian Gen Y. Findings indicate that Indian Gen Y hold relatively unique value preferences compared to Gen Y across the globe. Also, Gen Y employees in private sector have higher expectations of intrinsic and extrinsic rewards than Gen Y working in public sector. However, there are no significant differences in work values of male and female Gen Y. These are indicative of changing gender roles in Indian society.
