Workaholics' Work Can Be Counterproductive

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-11_27b7f946fb.jpgiStock/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- The more work you do, the better the job performance.  True or false? Alexander Falco, PhD, and his team at the University of Padova, Italy contend that people who work excessively and compulsively, otherwise known as workaholics, are only hurting their employers and themselves by failing to work smart.

In a study of 300 private-sector workers, Falco says that those categorized as workaholics suffered more mental and physical strain than those with a more balanced lifestyle.

The side-effects of this strain include digestive, memory and sleep problems that then led to poorer performance.  According to Falco, the strain is caused by people devoting so much of their lives at work that they don’t have adequate recovery time.

The University of Padova team recommends changes in the workplace to help people achieve a better balance between their jobs and private lives along with a program to help identify and treat workaholics.
