The managers’ perceptions (knowledge and experiences) are required to deeply highlight the generational differences among the employees in their expectations, attitudes, and behaviors in eight dimensions. The study shows that Luxor hoteliers face different expectations, attitudes, and behaviors among their employees. These differences are connected to the generational differences of employees indicating the fact that each generation has different expectations, attitudes, and behavior in the workplace.
