Abstract

The rise of “bring-your-own-device” and consumer IT has driven employees to use personal consumer technologies for business goals at work, a phenomenon known as IT consumerization (ITC). While ITC has been extensively studied regarding technology adoption and instrumental outcomes, we have little knowledge of how ITC influences humanistic objectives like thriving at work. To address this gap, our study integrates the adaptive structuration theory for individuals (ASTI) and the user-task-technology fit (UTTF) model. We propose a synthesized model that highlights technology and task adaptation as crucial behaviors in ITC. These adaptations promote job and professional fit, ultimately enabling employees’ thriving at work. We plan to conduct a field survey to validate the proposed model. Our research will shed light on how ITC facilitates work-related thriving and contribute to understanding user-initiated consumer IT use. Additionally, it responds to the need for research at the intersection of information systems and organizational behavior.

HOW IT CONSUMERIZATION INFLUENCES EMPLOYEES' THRIVING AT WORK: FROM AN ADAPTATION AND FIT PERSPECTIVE

The rise of “bring-your-own-device” and consumer IT has driven employees to use personal consumer technologies for business goals at work, a phenomenon known as IT consumerization (ITC). While ITC has been extensively studied regarding technology adoption and instrumental outcomes, we have little knowledge of how ITC influences humanistic objectives like thriving at work. To address this gap, our study integrates the adaptive structuration theory for individuals (ASTI) and the user-task-technology fit (UTTF) model. We propose a synthesized model that highlights technology and task adaptation as crucial behaviors in ITC. These adaptations promote job and professional fit, ultimately enabling employees’ thriving at work. We plan to conduct a field survey to validate the proposed model. Our research will shed light on how ITC facilitates work-related thriving and contribute to understanding user-initiated consumer IT use. Additionally, it responds to the need for research at the intersection of information systems and organizational behavior.
