In addition, job satisfaction and spirituality in the workplace was analyzed as stand alone variables. The design of this study was to interpret, develop, test and present research that explains the connection between workplace spirituality and a person’s perception to the relationship of job satisfaction. The ultimate goal of this research was to examine the relationships of the variables that would lead to further growth in employee development, increased job performance, lower turnover rates, higher profits and employee retention as they relate to organizational goals and strategies. This research indicated that there is a widespread belief that for companies to survive into the 21st century in the face of economical downturn and global competition, it is necessary for leaders and employees to tap into their spiritual resources.
