This paper concerns the work attitude drivers within the current scenario taking into account two different factors of influence, the culture and the generation of each individual. To belong to a given generation can affects individuals work attitudes as well as to belong to a given culture. The study considers these two factors in order to analyse five dimensions that are sources of work attitudes: vital project, professional ethics, attitude towards authority, leadership and corporate commitment. The paper draws upon a sample comprising Latin American countries and Iberian countries. Through the analysis of almost one thousand people, the results show the great differences in terms of generation and culture specially when focusing on vital project. The most relevant conclusion is that Latin America can not be considered as a whole in terms of individual work attitude. There is a wide diversity referred to this matter within this continent and managers should have this issue into account for improving employee motivation.
