A Meta-Analysis of Workaholism
Patel, Avani S.
This meta-analysis examines the relationship between workaholism and numerous work behaviors and outcomes in an attempt to derive a consensus regarding the current state of our understanding of this construct and clarify the impact that the compulsion to work may have on an individual's life. Overall, based on data from 44 studies, results suggest that there is a considerable amount of variability between workaholism and work-related outcomes. Specifically, the two most established and reputable measures of workaholism, the Work Addiction Risk Test (WART) and the Workaholism Battery (WorkBat), appear to focus on uniquely different aspects of workaholism and were subsequently found to be differentially related to various work criteria. These findings suggest that a consistent definition and operationalization of workaholism is explicitly needed before further progress can be made.
