Advances in Workplace Spirituality: Theory, Research and Application

A major change is taking place in the personal and professional lives of many CEOs and leaders as they aspire to integrate their spirituality with their work. In many cases, this has lead to very positive changes in their interpersonal relationships at work and their organization’s effectiveness. Further, there is evidence that workplace spirituality programs not only lead to beneficial personal outcomes, such as increased positive human health and psychological well-being, but that they also deliver improved employee commitment, productivity and reduced absenteeism and turnover.
