Summarizes research into the characteristics of workaholic behaviour, looking in particular at research into the levels of work involvement, drivenness and work enjoyment that workaholics manifest. Places workaholics alongside a range of typical attitudes to work – work enthusiasts, enthusiastic workaholics, unengaged workers, relaxed workers and
disenchanted workers, analysing their levels of work involvement, drivenness and work enjoyment to derive six types of work attitude. Considers the impact of these attitudes on a number of work outcomes – job satisfaction, career satisfaction, future career prospects and intention toquit. Analyses the response of just over 500 responses from male and female. MBA graduates from a Canadian university, assessing the extent of their work involvement, drivenness and work enjoyment to fit them into the different work attitudes. Concludes that workaholics were less satisfied with their jobs and careers than all other groups with the exception of disengaged workers. Sees high levels of job stress as lying at the root of this dissatisfaction and calls for more research into the sources of this stress.
