Abstract: Workaholism has been conceptualized by Spence and Robbins (1992) as comprising three dimensions: work involvement, feeling driven to work, and work enjoyment. These dimensions formed some work characteristic to describe staffs in organization. By using their construct, this paper combines literature concerning workaholism and further proposes a preliminary model to demonstrate our proposition. Based on the premise of positive workaholism, our model identifies potential linkages between workaholism and its antecedents: work values, and organizational values. Both instrinsic and extrinsic work values push individuals toward becoming workaholism. Encouraging-work-prior-tofamily is the organizational value accelerating toward workaholics. To explore the relationship between theories is benefit to human resource in organization.
