The advancements in technology implementation in organizations like banks have contributed to the stress on the employees, relating to technology and computers. This is termed as technostress. This study finds a relationship between the technostress and the performance of the employees of the Indian public sector banks from three Indian states numbering to a sample of 350 bank employees using a random sampling method. Findings from the study revealed that there exists a strong relationship between technostress factors and productivity, mostly negative, among the hypothesized relationships which are in line with many prior researches. Consistent with the extant literature, the study contributed to theoretical and managerial development.

Abstract


The advancements in technology implementation in organizations like banks have contributed to the stress on the employees, relating to technology and computers. This is termed as technostress. This study finds a relationship between the technostress and the performance of the employees of the Indian public sector banks from three Indian states numbering to a sample of 350 bank employees using a random sampling method. Findings from the study revealed that there exists a strong relationship between technostress factors and productivity, mostly negative, among the hypothesized relationships which are in line with many prior researches. Consistent with the extant literature, the study contributed to theoretical and managerial development.
