Abstract: This paper investigates the influence of high involvement work practice (HIWP) regarding information sharing, management support, employee participation, reward and recognition, and training on the adaptation of information technology (IT) in the banking organisations in Bangladesh. Data were collected on the HIWP and technology adaptation through a questionnaire survey. Partial least square was employed to analyse the data. Results suggest that the more employees experience knowledge sharing, management support, participate in decision-making, adequate reward and recognition, and training, they are more likely to adapt IT. The paper identifies and recommends HIWP as a crucial way of technology adaptation in the organisation. Implications and future research area are presented.

Keywords: high involvement work practice; technology adaptation; banking industry; industrial revolution; Bangladesh.
