The Psychology of Workaholism

We’re in the middle of a great undoing for productivity and hustle culture. From “slow productivity” to the anti-work movement, workers across all sectors and industries are scrambling to find a solution to their frustrations. We take a look at what makes a “workaholic”, whether or not it actually contributes to output, and the psychology behind this phenomenon.
