There exist some concepts such as workaholism, career satisfaction, work-life balance, work commitment and financial needs, which cause workers to put in more effort at the workplace and subsequently, an increase in their working hours. The main reason why these concepts are called premises is related to the fact that they are defined as factors leading heavy work investment (HWI) in the literature. Overworking has been a concept which could be measured only through time during work until recently, however, it is currently regarded as a concept which covers much more than heavy work as a result of HWI. The present study contributes to the literature by determining the interaction of HWI with its premises. In order to determine whether HWI is formed with effort or via time dimensions and which premises have been effective in its formation, 372 people working in Kars were surveyed on HWI and its premises. The data collected were analysed through Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) and Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS). Due to the limited number of studies on HWI in the literature, the effect of premises on HWI was investigated by developing more than one model. In fact, HWI-Time Commitment (TC) had a negative mediation effect between career satisfaction and premises while HWI-Work Intensity (WI) did not have any effect.
