Acquiring and retaining skilled IS professionals is a crucial success factor for organizations. Skilled IS professionals become even more important considering that organizations are constantly trying to improve through new innovative information technology. We plan to uncover the effects of conflicting explicit and implicit attitudes towards innovative technologies on job satisfaction and turnover intention, using blockchain technology as an example. We hypothesize that organizational factors such as IT capabilities and innovation support might have different effects on explicit and implicit attitudes, leading to attitude discrepancy, which negatively affects job satisfaction and increases turnover intentions. We plan to use a single concept implicit association test and a survey to assess implicit and explicit attitudes. Through our research, we expect to provide a better understanding of antecedents of job satisfaction and turnover intention on an organizational level that allows to derive better management practices for handling innovative technologies.
