Abstract

This study examines the relationship of three workaholism components proposed by Spence and Robbins and several work and psychological well‐being outcomes using hierarchical regression analysis. Data were collected from 171 construction company owners and senior managers in Norway using questionnaires. Work enjoyment was found to be positively related with work outcomes. Work enjoyment was also generally positively related with psychological well‐being while feeling driven to work was generally negatively related with psychological well‐being.
