Abstract

Resource Integration is a management philosophy, strategy, technique, and activity taken by employers and employees to achieve the desired outcome. New Zealand is one most isolated nations in the world but offers tremendous opportunities, especially for digital nomads. Numerous agreements exist between New Zealand and other countries, and a few of these opportunities make it simple for digital nomads to spend a few years living in New Zealand. This research addresses the resource integration management faced by these nomads and addresses actions taken to manage the challenges. Qualitative methodology and grounded theory were applied to answer the research questions. Snowball sampling with 15 semi-structured interviews and structured observation was conducted to collect data. Thematic analysis was then applied, and the findings were triangulated and shared in a theoretical framework. The framework reveals that the integration of resources among these nomads occurs on three levels: Micro, Meso and Macro. The research concludes that managing these levels is essential because it can lead to high efficiency and effectiveness in the organisations from the tasks carried out among digital nomads in New Zealand.
