Abstract

Organisational dependence on internet use is evermore increasing, which suggests cyberslacking will continue to be a serious threat and affect many aspects of organisational practice. Organisational reliance upon participation in social media is gradually growing. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of cyberslacking through social media on work-life conflict. In total, 797 white-collar employees in Australia participated in the study via a web-based survey. Data pertaining to the research model were analysed by fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis. Inspired by asymmetric logic and configuration theory, the analysis suggested that lower levels of cyberslacking led to lower levels of work-life conflict, which differs from claiming that higher levels of cyberslacking will lead to higher levels of work-life conflict.
