Workaholism, stress and work engagement : A quantitative study of correlations between workaholism, stress and work engagement (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning visar att personer med hög grad av arbetsnarkomani har en högre grad av själv-upplevd stress än personer med hög grad av arbetsengagemang (Schaufeli, Shimazu & Taris, 2009). Syftet med denna studie var således att se om stress kan prediceras utifrån arbetsnarkomani och arbetsengagemang men också om liknande resultat från tidigare studier kunde uppnås gällande samband mellan stress och arbetsnarkomani samt samband mellan stress och arbetsengagemang. Frågeställningarna som formulerades var följande: Kan stress prediceras utifrån arbetsnarkomani och arbetsengagemang? Hur korrelerar stress med arbetsnarkomani? Hur korrelerar stress med arbetsengagemang? Deltagarna i denna studie var 102 personer varav 59 kvinnor och 43 män. Åldersintervallen låg på 19 till 64 år med ett medelvärde (M) på 39år. Tre väletablerade enkäter användes för att mäta arbetsnarkomani (DUWAS-10), arbetsengagemang (UWES) samt stress (PSS-10). Resultatet visade att stress kan prediceras utifrån arbetsnarkomani och arbetsengagemang, den procentuella överlappningen för gemensam varians visade 16,9%. Resultatet visade också att stress har ett positivt samband med arbetsnarkomani samt att stress har ett samband i negativ riktning med arbetsengagemang, vilket till stor del går i linje med tidigare forskning.

Abstract [en]

Previous research shows that people with a high level of workaholism have a higher level of self-percieved stress than people with a high level of workengagement (Schaufeli, Shimazu & Taris, 2009). The aim of this study was therefore to investigate if stress can be predicted by workaholism and workengagement but also if similiar results from previous research could be found in the matter of correlations between stress and workaholism and correlations between stress and workengagement. The following questions were formulated: Can stress be predicted by workaholism and workengagement? How does stress correlate with workaholism? How does stress correlate with workengagement? The participants of this study were 102 people whereof 59 women and 43 men. The age range was between 19 to 64 years with a mean (M) of 39 years. Three well-established questionnaries were used to measure workaholism (DUWAS-10), workengagement (UWES) and stress (PSS-10). The results showed that stress can be predicted by workaholism and work engagement, the percentage of overlap of common variance showed 16.9%. The results also showed that stress has a positive correlation with workaholism and stress are associated negatively with workengagement, which are largely in line with previous research.
