Business Risk Workaholism

Management challenges and action guidelines for professional practice

Ulrike Emma Meißner

The business risk that workaholism presents is an underestimated risk in companies and human resources management, which can develop into an existential threat to a business. In this empirical study, for the first time in German-speaking countries, workaholics were asked about their addiction indices and their effects on companies. In addition, operational influences were researched to determine their ability to cause or promote work addiction. A detailed risk analysis illustrates the risk potential of workaholism and its management challenges. The practice-oriented action guide shows opportunities to identify workaholics and gives managers pragmatic recommendations for action. Therefore, the challenges of workaholism can be faced in everyday business life.
