Abstract

The present study examined the mediating role of two components of workaholism (working excessively and working compulsively) on perceived supervisor excessive work behaviors and three employee well-being outcomes: quality of life, life satisfaction, and psychological flourishing. A cross-sectional sample consisting of 324 Filipino non-supervisory workers responded to a self-report questionnaire on workaholism, perceptions of excessive work behaviors displayed by the immediate supervisor, quality of life, life satisfaction, psychological flourishing, and demographic variables. Structural equation modelling revealed that perceived supervisor excessive work behaviors were positively related to both working excessively and working compulsively. Working compulsively was negatively related to quality of life, life satisfaction, and psychological flourishing; however, working excessively was not significantly related to any of the employee well-being outcomes. Mediation analyses also revealed working compulsively as a mediator between perceived supervisor excessive work behaviors and the employee well-being outcomes. Theoretical and practical implications, as well as recommendations for future study, are discussed.
