Abstract

The aim of the present study was to find the relationship between workaholism and psychological well-being among employees of banking and telecom 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. Implications, limitations and suggestions have been highlighted.
