There is a great need to attract and retain younger generations of faculty to ensure long-term sustainability of higher education institutions. The research reported here provides empirical evidence that Generation X academics in higher education institutions are likely to quit as a result of both lower job satisfaction and reduced organisational commitment. The data also showed that performance or research productivity is not a predictor of job satisfaction. Implications of these findings and avenues for further research are discussed.
