Recent developments in information technology provide unprecedented opportunities for companies and employees to explore non-traditional work arrangements. Alongside their benefits in terms of efficiency and productivity, these new work arrangements bring new problems and pitfalls for the employees through increased workload and stress. Drawing on boundary theory, this paper examines employees’ preferences regarding informationtechnology-driven work arrangements, with a focus on relationships between these non-traditional work arrangements and two personal factors, work-family conflict and technology-readiness.
