Abstract

The inability of management in the Industrial Revolution Era 4.0 to recognise the needs of generation y employees in terms of job satisfaction is a scourge of companies in keeping them working. An incident occurred at a private television company X in Indonesia. The results of previous studies concluded that one of the causes of the phenomenon of voluntary employee turnover in one private television company in Indonesia was caused by office politics. The voluntary turnover because of office politics continued until 2017, even though the company needed reliable employees to create innovation to improve sustainable performance. This study aims to explain the conditions and events related to office politics in company X. A qualitative method of case study is used to reveal this incident by collecting data through interviews and field observations. Purposive and quota sampling was the choice as a sampling technique. The results of this study indicate that the understanding of office political skills by leaders and human resources managers was inadequate. Their political skills were not optimally prepared for employees, especially generation y. Office political skills are not something that is considered important so activities related to training and development for these skills are still limited. In the Industrial Revolution Era 4.0 employees need to understand that involvement in office politics is not a disgrace or a destructive behaviour. Based on these findings, human resource managers and leaders need to design effective organisational savvy training systems.
