Take away

The results indicate that the post-lockdown adoption of remote work is explained by behavioral intention, behavioral expectation and facilitating conditions, but that demographic characteristics and factors related to the specific features of remote work all nevertheless moderate the relationships in our model. In addition to gender, the generational gap and behavioral tendency should be taken into consideration to improve employee acceptance rates.
