Description

The increasing prevalence of employee Personal Use of Technology at Work (PUTW) has brought about the need to understand its consequences on work behavior. Specifically, this proposed study investigates the impact of the incidental emotions brought about through the interjection of personal tasks while at work. We hypothesize that personal tasks such as social media use impact emotions that carry over into a subsequent work task. Additionally, we hypothesize that the time spent performing such a personal task influences both the effect of PUTW on emotions and the impact of emotions on work behavior. To test these hypotheses, an experimental design is proposed and described.
