PACIS 2019 Proceedings


Cyberloafing is the biggest time waster in organization, 69 percent of respondents admitted waste time on non-work related activities each day. This number might be higher in China for a larger population of cyber citizens. Previous Studies have investigated the antecedents from various perspectives, such as organization justice, deterrence and work stressor. No one addressed cyberloafing from the perspective of guanxi, even though the strength of guanxi directly determines the appropriate behavior of employees , and employees are grounded by such behavioral norms. To fill this gap, we proposed a research model from the perspective of guanxi theory to understand employees’ cyberloafing behavior.
