Abstract

The study examines the mediating role of human resource (HR) quality on ICT adoption effects on corporate governance. Extant information systems research has not examined the dual effect of ICT adoption and HR quality on corporate governance at the global level. Furthermore, the mediating role of HR quality on corporate governance has not been widely explored. To address this, we rely on secondary data from 140 countries and Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modelling and the Technology-Organization-Environment framework as the theory to examine these effects. The findings show that whilst the direct effects of ICT adoption on HR quality is positive, it is not so on corporate governance. Furthermore, the direct effects of HR quality on corporate governance and the mediating role of HR quality on ICT adoption effects on corporate governance were found to be positive. Our study provides more insight and proffers some implications for research, practice and policy.

The Effect of ICT Adoption on Corporate Governance: The Mediating Role of Human Resource Quality

The study examines the mediating role of human resource (HR) quality on ICT adoption effects on corporate governance. Extant information systems research has not examined the dual effect of ICT adoption and HR quality on corporate governance at the global level. Furthermore, the mediating role of HR quality on corporate governance has not been widely explored. To address this, we rely on secondary data from 140 countries and Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modelling and the Technology-Organization-Environment framework as the theory to examine these effects. The findings show that whilst the direct effects of ICT adoption on HR quality is positive, it is not so on corporate governance. Furthermore, the direct effects of HR quality on corporate governance and the mediating role of HR quality on ICT adoption effects on corporate governance were found to be positive. Our study provides more insight and proffers some implications for research, practice and policy.
