Abstract (English)

In the todays work environment, particularly in distributed work environments, it is crucial to be able to deal with constant connectivity. People are nearly 24/7 connected with their mobile devices. The phenomenon of constant connectivity emerged out of the possibility of being reachable and connected everywhere and anytime. If people are connected nonstop, negative effects can arise. Therefore it is important that they learn to cope with constant connectivity. An interpretive case study was conducted to identify different coping strategies based on the social learning theory and the comfort-stretch-panic zone (CSP) model. Various sources of constant connectivity could be identified which lead to the development of different coping strategies. Several triggers were found which caused people to change their behavior regarding constant connectivity.
