Abstract: Research from past to present on organizational behavior and management may need to be re-evaluated according to today’s conditions. In this context, it has become necessary to examine the relationship between leadership styles and employees’ attitudes regarding both past and future generations. In the study, whether transformational leadership and its dimensions affect employees’ job satisfaction and organizational commitment was investigated according to generation differences. In the study, whether transformational leadership and its dimensions affect employees’ job satisfaction and organizational commitment was investigated according to generation differences. This study contained in the pharmaceutical sector in Turkey was carried out in 156 private-sector employees. The questionnaire technique was used as a data collection method. As a result of the research, transformational leadership has affected both job satisfaction and organizational commitment in X and Y generations. In addition, it was observed that the participants made an evaluation close to the answer “satisfied” in terms of job satisfaction. On the other hand, to the statements about the concepts of organizational commitment and transformational leadership, the participants gave a close answer to the “agree” option. It has been determined that the employees’ job satisfaction and organizational commitment levels do not differ according to demographic variables.
