||All day and all of the night: The relative contribution of two dimensions of workaholism to well-being in self-employed workers
||Apr.-June 2008, Vol.22, No.2, p.153-165. 47 ref.
||The objective of this study was to examine the associations between workaholism and perceived health (exhaustion, physical complaints, and feelings of professional efficacy). It involved a sample of 477 Dutch self-employed workers. Workaholism is characterized by long work hours coupled with the inability to detach from work. It was expected that both workaholism components would be related to ill health. Variance and regression analyses revealed that this reasoning was confirmed for one component (inability to detach from work), but not for the other (working long hours).
