Workaholism reduces mental wellbeing

Steps2wellbeing, Dorset HealthCare University, 2019

"I think that in most cases, but not all, workaholism is a terrible thing that ruins lives - not only the workaholics but their family. Expecting people to work long hours is wrong from ethical and health reasons; but is also incredibly stupid from a business making money perspective. Many employees are paid to think. When people are tired they don't think clearly or efficiently. Also, one of the factors linked to stress and employee attrition is a lack of control at work.

"Finally, workaholism often results in stress, sickness absence and even costly employment tribunals. On the other hand if you really love your work then workaholism is great. Nobody ever accused Leonardo, Mozart or Jeremy Clarkson of over working."
