Together with professor Jean Michel Sahut from IDRAC Business School in France, associate researcher at BIBS Raphael Lissillour has published an article in the Journal of Business Research entitled: ‘The adoption of remote work platforms after the Covid-19 lockdown: New approach, new evidence’.
This research article is based on the analysis of quantitative data collected from questionnaires and qualitative data from interviews with employees of Chinese firms in the service sector. The theory used in this paper is the an enhanced version of the technology acceptance model (UTAUT).
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.
