Keywords: Work engagement, workaholism, school principals, well-being.
The present study aimed on the one side to examine the differences between
work engagement and workaholism in terms of their associations with health and well207
being, as well as with other aspects of the relational and working domains; on the other
side it aimed to explore the nature of the relationship, both linear and non-linear, between
work engagement and workaholism. 208 School Principals (65.9% female) filled
out a well-validated questionnaire. The results of the structural equation modeling confirm
that work engagement and workaholism are two distinct constructs, whose associations
with employee well-being are different. On the contrary there was no relationship
between work engagement and workaholism, either linear or curvilinear.
