As the older generation is retiring from the workforce, it became a concern for many organizations on ways to manage the new generation who is flowing into the current workforce. This new generation is known as Gen Y. This generation workforce often linked to job hopping and their loyalty towards the organization is being questioned by researchers as many organizations are experiencing a high level of attrition among them. This study investigated teamwork as a critical success factor of work engagement among Gen Y. The methodology adopted in this study includes an extensive review of the literature on teamwork that contributes to working engagement, followed by questionnaire distribution and then the answers were processed and statistically measured and analyzed. The results of this study conclude that there is a significant positive relationship between teamwork, work engagement and IR 4.0. The practical implications of the study will be useful for the organization to address and examine the effect of teamwork that influences work engagement to reduce high turnover among Gen Y employees.
