Workaholics Name: Institutions: WORKAHOLICS Work-holism is not a usual word. It can be used to define someone who puts in too much work, used as a source of pride, or to suggest a person who is ill, works compulsively, and is not able to quit doing so. Ergomania is a term that is closely related and could mean obsession or mania related to work with the Japanese referring to it as karoshi, which they view as negative and a cause of early death (Antoniou & Cooper, 2005).
