Managerial Task/Competence: People in this category exhibit a strong desire to climb the corporate general management ladder. Their ultimate objective is management per se and the responsibility which accompanies general management positions.3. Technical / Functional Competence: For individuals anchored in technical / functional competence, actual work content becomes a primary concern and chief area of interest in formulating career decisions.4. Security and Stability: The primary concern of people in this anchor category is stability and / or security.5. Variety: The centrally important theme would involve the diversity of challenges and the need to maintain flexibility of responses.6. Creativity: Individuals anchored in creativity are dominantly influenced by a motivation to build, create, invent or produce something of their own.

Basic identity: The need to be associated with a firm or occupation which externally or visibly enhances or substitutes for self definition.8.

Extrinsic motivation: Extrinsic motivation emphasizes the value an individual places on the ends of an action. It is "the motivation to work primarily in response to something apart from the work itself (Amabile, Hennesy & Tighe 1994: 950).10. Achievement orientation: Achievement orientation is conceptualized as a perceptual-cognitive framework that influences how individuals approach, interpret, and respond to achievement activities.

The research findings are based on the quantitative data of 378 responses and the observations from conducting 10 focus group discussions and 21 triad interviews.

  20. 20. CONCLUSIONS, LIMITATIONS ANDDIRECTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH Conclusions – Managerial competence, organization brand identity and sense of service are Gen Yers’ focus in making their career decisions. However, a Gen Y employee may have one particular primary aspiration and two or more secondary aspirations. – Gen Ys are motivated by extrinsic factors, only marginally than the intrinsic factors and they are highly oriented towards achievement value. – Overall career aspirations are positively correlated with intrinsic motivations and values such as achievement, monetary and role orientations. – Partial negative correlation is seen between the career anchors and intrinsic motivations, such as, technical & functional competence - technically competent supervisor, autonomy & independence - Equitable Pay, geographical stability - equitable pay. – Some career anchors are partially negatively correlated with extrinsic motivations, such as managerial competence vis-a-vis sound company policies, job stability vis-à-vis fringe benefits and alike. – Further analyses showed there were significant differences within the different cohorts, such as, industry, gender, location, work - experience and company size, for overall career aspirations, motives and values.
  21. 21. CONCLUSIONS, LIMITATIONS ANDDIRECTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH Direction for Future research: – Gen Ys’ career aspirations, motives and values are shaped by their individual socio-cultural background – As Gen Y moves forward in their career & life stages, their career aspirations also gets influenced by their personal and socio-cultural needs. – North youth is not enough demanding for comfortable working conditions &sound HR policies. Either it could be because of “satisfied lot” Low aspirations or something more serious. These in-congruencies is worth exploring in future research Limitations: – Inter and intra organizational factors have not been considered {for eg. Comfortable working condition (as an extrinsic motivator) is very low at 18.71 (at Delhi & NCR) as compared to west (54.84) & south which indicates that organization in the north zone may have less developed corporate culture}. – Market variables are neglected, {for eg. In the eastern zone, job stability lower than any other zone, maybe because of “socio-political effect”- more security feeling}. – We have taken a single unit of analysis. Also, the underlying reasons of the correlation analysis results remain inconclusive, but it gives direction for future research. – Generation Yers’ archetypes not explored. Scope of study limited to urban locations
