Workaholism – An interaction between internal and external factors

Track: Organizational Behavior & Theory

Keywords: Workaholism, self-criticism, self-efficacy, LMX, WFC, neuroticism, job autonomy, suppressor variable

Mazzetti, Schaufeli, and Guglielmi (2014) asked, “Are workaholics born or made?” (p. 227). The current research aims to study the joint impact of both internal and external factors in relation to workaholism. For this endeavor, we performed two studies: Study 1 (349 employees) tested two moderators (self-criticism and LMX) between self-efficacy and workaholism (drive and enjoyment). Study 2 (158 employees) tested a comprehensive model, containing a moderator (job autonomy) and two mediators (work drive and work-family conflict) between neuroticism and enjoyment. Multivariate (opposed to bivariate) analyses allowed for thorough understanding of workaholism. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
