The aim of the present study was to find the relationship between workaholism and psychological well-being among employees of banking and telecom sector. The sample consisted of 276 employees from both public and private sector. Workaholism was measured by using Work Battery (Spence & Robbins, 1992) and psychological well-being was measured by using Psychological Well-Being Scale (Ryff & Keyes, 1995). The results showed significant positive relationship between workaholism and psychological well-being. Group comparisons revealed that employees working in banks exhibited higher levels of workaholism than employees of telecom sector while no gender differences were observed.
