Millennials make up the majority of the working population now, however organizations are struggling to retain them, as they tend to turnover in their job roles after an average of just a few years. The purpose of this study was to examine what workplace variables could predict lower turnover intentions in Millennials. This study examined a set of two work benefits factors, satisfaction with salary and satisfaction with career advancement, and a set of three organizational environment factors, satisfaction with feedback, satisfaction with supervisor, and satisfaction with work-life balance, as predictors of lower turnover intentions in Millennials. A survey was administered to 102 Millennials across industries. Standard multiple regression analysis showed that satisfaction with supervisor was the only organizational environment variable that had a significant unique contribution, but that both factors in the work benefits set had a significant unique contribution. Two hierarchical multiple regression analyses were also conducted. The first revealed that the work benefits set accounted for significant variance above and beyond the organizational environments set, with both factors having significant unique contributions. The second revealed that the organizational environment set accounted for significant variance above and beyond the work benefits set, however, only satisfaction with supervisor had a significant unique contribution.
