In this research, we study how non-frugal organizational IT practices can affect employee well-being in completing managerial tasks. Building on the conservation of resource theory, we will examine a three-way interaction effect of the redundancy of required skills, required resources, and obtained results on technology-driven stressors. Data was collected from 357 managers to analyze the proposed three-way interaction effect for techno-overload, techno-complexity, techno- invasion, techno-insecurity, and techno-uncertainty. This article highlights the importance of being frugal – that is, acknowledging and diminishing redundancy among ICT assets and usage within organizations - for reducing technostress among employees.
