Work-Related Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) and Work Life Balance: The Influence of New Communication Technologies on Perceived Work Life Balance, Burnout, Job Satisfaction, and Intention to Leave the Organization

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate employee perceptions of the influence of new communication technologies on perceptions of work life balance, burnout, intention to leave the organization, and job satisfaction. An on-line survey of 168 employees from over 30 companies in a Midwestern city was conducted to assess relationships among these variables. The results indicated that hours of work-related CMC activity outside of normal work hours contributed to perceptions of work life imbalance. However, positive attitudes toward new communication technologies predicted increased work life balance. Controlling for worker age and overall life stress, work life balance/imbalance was found to predict job burnout and job satisfaction, but not intention to leave the organization. The authors discuss implications of the study findings for theory and practice, limitations of the study, and directions for future research.
