Antecedents and effects of use of flexwork practices in times of crisis
MetadataShow full item record
The effects of use of flexwork practices have often been researched, but this is not the case for its antecedents. In this research, the effect of the perceived impact of the economic crisis on the use of flexwork practices is studied and whether job security and self-monitoring moderate this relationship. In addition, the effects of use of flexwork practices on organizational member proficiency performance and work engagement are investigated. Data is collected via an online survey under 212 employees. The perceived impact of the crisis appears to positively influence the use of flexwork practices. Self-monitoring and job security do not moderate this relationship. The use of flexplace practices results in a higher organizational member proficiency performance, but use of flextime practices does not. There appears to be no effect of use of flexwork practices on work engagement. Theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed.
