The growing awareness of the role of spirituality in bringing about myriad of beneficial organizational outcomes is leading to a surge of interest in the topic in both in Corporates and academic world alike. On the other hand, wellness is witnessing substantial attention, especially regarding adoption of various intervention programs to facilitate healthy living. Interestingly, many wellness models include the dimension of spirituality at the core of their model (Myers, Sweeney and Witmer, 2000).

A sample of 298 employees from IT, ITES and BFSI organizations based in Delhi NCR was empirically tested using a survey design to explore the relationship between workplace spirituality and employee wellness. Correlations and regressions were applied to the data and results indicate that workplace spirituality is indeed a significant predictor of employee wellbeing.

Abstract


The growing awareness of the role of spirituality in bringing about myriad of beneficial organizational outcomes is leading to a surge of interest in the topic in both in Corporates and academic world alike. On the other hand, wellness is witnessing substantial attention, especially regarding adoption of various intervention programs to facilitate healthy living. Interestingly, many wellness models include the dimension of spirituality at the core of their model (Myers, Sweeney and Witmer, 2000). This study attempts at examining the potential influence of workplace spirituality on the overall wellbeing of the respondents. A sample of 298 employees from IT, ITES and BFSI organizations based in Delhi NCR was empirically tested using a survey design to explore the relationship between workplace spirituality and employee wellness. Correlations and regressions were applied to the data and results indicate that workplace spirituality is indeed a significant predictor of employee wellbeing. The reasons for the data findings, its consequences and implications as well as directions for future research have been discussed.
