Although the concept of workaholism inorganizations has received considerable attention, ourunderstanding of it based on research evidence islimited. This results from the absence of both suitabledefinitions and measures of the concept. This study, usingmeasures developed by Spence and Robbins (1992),examines gender differences in a predominantly whitemanagerial sample-in three workaholism components and workaholic job behaviors among managers andprofessionals. Although females and males were found todiffer on many personal and situational demographiccharacters, they were similar on the three workaholism components: work involvement, feeling driven towork, and work enjoyment. Females reported higher levelsof particular workaholic job behaviors (e.g.,perfectionism, job stress) likely to be associated with lower levels of satisfaction andwell-being.
