Current method of working especially in the ICT environment has demanded great deal of time using various sophisticated technological gadgets. Korunka & Hoonaker, (2014) claimed that long hours dedicated to work and prolonged usage of sophisticated technological gadgets has lead to various issues pertaining to the work-life balance and well-being of employees in the ICT sector.

Given the serious importance of wellbeing amongst ICT employees there may be a possible lead to high level of strain and inequity between employment and life obligations. In this circumstance, ease of use, ease of navigation, and the comfort ability of the user may play a clear responsibility in ensuring minimal stress and strain.
