Questions have been raised around the privacy, securit...
Article
Workers’ technostress is inevitable with the current omnipresent digital technologies in organisations. While there are numerous empirical studies of work-related technostress, we need a holistic conceptual model that summarises those studies’ findings. Thus, this study aims to build a conceptual model to explain workers' technostress. We gather wo...
