Workplace spirituality and employee commitment; ‘a critical review of contemporary literature
* Corresponding author
For a long time, the Western idea of life has kept the outer real world away from the inner world of spirituality. I have always felt that combining two could be damaging. There is a growing realization by the modern management think tanks that workspace spirituality has a definite role in improving performance and productivity while still ensuring employee engagement, motivation, commitment, and fulfilling his individual spiritual needs. Loyal personnel are the greatest treasured means to achieve a feat in the long run for any enterprise. Having committed employees enhances the competitive edge of any organization by lowering the rates of people leaving the organization and quitting their jobs. There has been limited work done to study the interplay of spirituality at the workplace and organizational commitment of employees how one correlates with the other. This work attempts to review the contemporary peer-reviewed literature on the association between workplace spirituality and organizational commitment. In this critical appraisal of contemporary literature, we look at the role of workspace spirituality in improving employee commitment. Our review looked at various measurable dimensions of workspace spirituality and employee commitment, which have been used by recent empirical questionnaire-based studies and their findings.
