With the proliferation and ubiquity of information and communication technologies (ICTs), it is becoming imperative for individuals to constantly engage with these technologies in order to get work accomplished. Academic literature, popular press, and anecdotal evidence suggest that ICTs are responsible for increased stress levels in individuals (known as technostress). However, despite the influence of stress on health costs and productivity, it is not very clear which characteristics of ICTs… Expand

TECHNOSTRESS : TECHNOLOGICAL ANTECEDENTS AND IMPLICATIONS 1
With the proliferation and ubiquity of information and communication technologies (ICTs), it is becoming imperative for individuals to constantly engage with these technologies in order to get workExpand
Towards contextualizing stressors in technostress research
TLDR
The results show that the mere quantity of tasks does not serve as a good predictor of strain, and underline the need to investigate the ways in which ICT alters the organization of work instead of focusing on how ICT may support specific tasks. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF TECHNOSTRESS ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACCEPTANCE
Recent information technology is developing rapidly enough to provide new insights beyond human intuition. However, due to incidents such as job loss and privacy invasion, individuals are exposed toExpand
Am I outdated? The role of strengths use support and friendship opportunities for coping with technological insecurity
TLDR
It is argued that employees who experience two key organizational resources, i.e. organizational support for strengths use and friendship opportunities, are better suited to cope with these modern forms of strain and reinforce each other in such way that employees' coping capabilities rise and health issues decrease. Expand
Stress Related Issues Due to Too Much Technology: Effects on Working Professionals
TLDR
Overall, results corroborate that the phenomenon known as “technostress” exists and suggest “Technoinsecurity” (individuals who feel insecure in their level of understanding of information communication technologies) is not supported. Expand
Technostress from a Neurobiological Perspective
TLDR
The results of the study show that cortisol levels increase significantly as a consequence of system breakdown in a human-computer interaction task, confirming the value of a category of research heretofore largely neglected in ICT-related disciplines and arguing that future research investigating human-machine interactions should consider the neurobiological perspective as a valuable complement to traditional concepts. Expand
On the biology of technostress: literature review and research agenda
  • R. Riedl
  • Computer Science, Sociology
  • DATB
  • 2012
TLDR
The review of technostress research based on biological approaches that has been published in various disciplines such as human-computer interaction, medicine, biological psychology, and ergonomics reveals significant negative biological effects that develop from human interaction with ICT. Expand
Technostress: measuring a new threat to well-being in later life
TLDR
A new scale designed to measure technostress specifically among older adults is presented, which had good internal homogeneity, significant inter-construct correlations and high loadings on a single latent factor. Expand
An Empirical Investigation of the Consequences of Technostress: Evidence from China
TLDR
It is argued that technostress consequences are multi-faceted and lead to not only job-centric but also IT-centric detriments and a model is proposed that theoretically ties together the immediate reactions and extensive consequences of technost stress for users. Expand
The Sources and Consequences of Mobile Technostress in the Workplace
TLDR
The impacts of mobile technostress on individuals’ job satisfaction are examined and it is hypothesize that self-efficacy has a positive impact on job satisfaction and the moderator effects of habit will negatively moderate the relationship between mobile technstress creators and job satisfaction.

The Consequences of Technostress for End Users in Organizations: Conceptual Development and Empirical Validation
TLDR
The results, based on structural equation modeling (SEM), show that technostress creators decrease job satisfaction, leading to decreased organizational and continuance commitment, while Technostress inhibitors increase job satisfaction and organizational and Continance commitment. Expand
Technological stress: psychophysiological aspects of working with modern information technology.
  • B. Arnetz
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Scandinavian journal of work, environment & health
  • 1997
TLDR
In a study of the bodily, mental, and psychophysiological reactions of employees involved in the design of advanced telecommunications systems and of office employees using regular video display technology, several stress-related psychosomatic disorders have been identified. Expand
The Impact of Technostress on Role Stress and Productivity
TLDR
By showing that technostress inversely affects productivity, the paper reinforces that failure to manage the effects of ICT-induced stress can offset expected increases in productivity. Expand
New Information Technologies, Job Profiles, and External Workload as Predictors of Subjectively Experienced Stress and Dissatisfaction at Work
TLDR
The 2nd Vienna Implementation Study, which investigated the effects on workers of continuous implementations, that is, the implementations of new information technologies on workplaces already equipped with computers, finds that strain and dissatisfaction among employees in 10 different companies are investigated. Expand
New technology in the office: Attitudes and consequences
Abstract This study examines the attitudes of office workers towards the introduction of new technology, the evaluation of the impact of that technology and the connection between work with newExpand
Perception of job security in a process of technological change: Its influence on psychological well-being
The main objective of this study was to investigate the perception that workers have of technological change and its relation with psychological variables. The hypotheses investigated are based onExpand
“Technostress” A literature survey on the effect of information technology on library users
TLDR
The paper provides a literature derived set of information about library users who initially find it difficult to cope with the new technology and experience anxiety, which will affect their adoption of IT technologies negatively and may eventually begin to avoid contact with computers. Expand
Effects of the implementation of information technology on employees' strain and job satisfaction: A context-dependent approach
The effects on staff of the implementation of new office information technology were investigated in ten companies in Vienna using a longitudinal design. Strain and satisfaction of 331 employeesExpand
Lay representations of workplace stress: What do people really mean when they say they are stressed?
Abstract An individual's beliefs in relation to stress are likely to affect their perceptions, and hence their work-related actions (such as absenteeism). In this paper, lay representations of workExpand
Research Commentary: Desperately Seeking the "IT" in IT Research - A Call to Theorizing the IT Artifact
TLDR
It is proposed that IS researchers begin to theorize specifically about IT artifacts, and then incorporate these theories explicitly into their studies, and believe that such a research direction is critical if IS research is to make a significant contribution to the understanding of a world increasingly suffused with ubiquitous, interdependent, and emergent information technologies.
