Research Brief: Always Connected: Technology Use Increases Techno-stress Among Public Managers

The Rutgers SPAA Research Brief "Always Connected: Technology Use Increases Techno-stress Among Public Managers" discusses the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the stress individuals experience from this ICT use, known as "techno-stress." The brief addresses the questions: Do top-level public managers in small and medium sized local governments experience techno-stress? Is techno-stress related to certain types of ICTs? Which individual and organizational practices increase or inhibit techno-stress?

The research brief was co-authored by SPAA Assistant Professor Leonor Camarena, whose research agenda addresses both established and emerging issues related to public management, nonprofit management, and local government. Her research focuses broadly on representation, leadership, gender, and diversity in public and nonprofit organizations.
