Abstract

Recently, the change and transformation process experienced in the competitive conditions of the enterprises put pressure on the employees along with the management. The desire to be more effective and efficient in order to gain competitive advantage forces employees to work harder. As a result of internal and external pressures, employees turn into workaholics, leading to burnout. As a result of these developments, the relationship between workaholism and burnout is frequently brought up. The main purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between workaholism and burnout levels of healthcare workers and the effect of demographic variables on them. The population of the study consisted of the health workers of a public hospital operating in Konya. A total of 450 questionnaires returned, but 51 questionnaires were not analyzed due to deficiency.
