Purpose: This study aimed to examine the factors affecting virtual work arrangements (VWAs) and their impact on organizational performance (OP) within Nepalese organizations.

Design/methodology/approach: The study utilized a quantitative research methodology, employing a sample size of 408 individuals engaged in a virtual work environment. It conducted empirical research to examine the impact of communication satisfaction (CS), job satisfaction (JS), support in computer anxiety (CA), and personal empowerment (PE) on OP.

Findings: The study's findings revealed that CA had the highest significance level (β = 0.466, p < 0.05) in predicting enhanced OP. Likewise, it was seen that PE had a positive impact (β = 0.385, p < 0.05) on OP, indicating that organizational outcomes often improve when individuals experience a sense of empowerment. Additionally, it was worth noting that there was a statistically insignificant but positive association between CA and OP (β = 0.086, p > 0.05), suggesting that CA does not support enhanced OP. In contrast, JS has a negative and insignificant relationship with OP (β = - 0.097, p > 0.05) at VWAs in Nepal.

Research Implications/Value: Such findings contribute to a greater comprehension of the factors influencing OP in Nepalese VWAs. In order to have a comprehensive understanding of the interplay between VWAs and OP, future research must examine additional elements and conduct more in-depth investigations.
