    ABSTRACT: The problems of modern man may be related with the difficulty in understanding human nature and its motivations. The Vedic text Tattvabodha by Sankaracharya as well as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs help us to better understand human being and its motives. The purpose of this essay is to articulate an approximation between Tattvabodha and the Hierarchy of Needs. The benefits are that such dialog allows a better understanding of each text, separately and jointly. For Sankaracharya, man is constituted by five layers: food, energy, lower mind, higher mind, and happiness. On the other hand, for Maslow, there are eight needs which may be separated into deficit needs and higher needs. The layers related to food and physiological needs are very close, as well as happiness and self-actualization and transcendence needs.

    ABSTRACT: The business environment has undergone dramatic changes over the past decades that have brought about new expectations within the work environment. Entrepreneurship is one of many areas that has been affected by this shift. In fact, the definition of entrepreneur has evolved beyond the traditional external focus to include an internal organizational perspective known as institutional entrepreneur (IE). IEs initiate structural change within their organizations that transforms the way business is conducted. Current research has demonstrated the importance of workplace spirituality as an element in developing an inclusive organizational culture. In this paper, we draw from the institutional entrepreneurship literature to examine the rise of IEs who champion the development of spiritual workplaces. We call these individuals spiritual institutional entrepreneurs (SIEs). We also present a conceptual model for analyzing the role of SIEs and offer notable executive exemplars who reimagined their organizations through the lens of workplace spirituality.

    ABSTRACT: There has been minimal research on the impact of an employee’s workplace spirituality on his/her innovative work behavior (IWB). The current study aims to fill this gap in the literature. In order to understand the psychology of workplace spirituality, this study has longitudinally analyzed the relationship between workplace spirituality and IWB (self and supervisor-based assessments), and impact of perceived person–organization fit (P–O fit) on this relationship. Data were collected from 448 subordinates and 79 supervisors from two knowledge-intensive industries of Thailand. Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the relationships. Results of the study indicate that employee’s workplace spirituality is positively related to both self and supervisor ratings of innovative behaviors, and perception of perceived P–O fit acts as a partial mediator between workplace spirituality and IWB at both Time 1 and Time 2. These results imply that an employee’s experience of workplace spirituality impacts his/her perceived P–O fit which in turn helps in engaging him/her to display IWB more often. Study findings begin to explain how workplace spirituality impacts IWB of individuals. Specifically, we find that perceived P–O fit explains the relationship between workplace spirituality and IWB.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes the Faith and Work Organizational Framework as a new organizational framework that builds on and addresses shortcomings of existing rubrics by giving needed attention to human, religious, legal, and organizational dynamics. This framework describes corporate actions and attitudes toward workplace spirituality and religion. It draws on symbolic management theory, and earlier conceptions of faith-friendly workplaces. The Faith and Work Organizational Framework identifies four distinct organizational approaches to addressing religion and spirituality at work (i.e. faith-avoiding, faith-based, faith-safe, and faith-friendly). Part one of this paper contextualizes the need for such a framework in light of the faith-at-work movement, Title VII, and human rights theory. Part two of the paper addresses shortcomings of existing models and offers a new language and framework (with four modalities). The paper concludes with theoretical, research, and practical implications of this framework.

    ABSTRACT: Focusing on the act of purchasing retail monastic products, this article applies a cause-related marketing (CRM) approach within a Management, Spirituality, and Religion (MSR) framework. When they purchase monastic products, are individuals simply buyers or do they, by means of their actions, support a religious cause by combining a gesture of purchasing with a gesture of gift-giving? We conducted qualitative interviews with individuals making purchases at religious and secular points of sale in France, and subjected the data acquired to textual analysis. Four classes of meaning emerged. It transpires that gift and purchase are intertwined and systematically associated with a hedonistic sentiment combining pleasure, trust, and love. The soft expression of religiosity illustrates the phenomenon of spirituality taking refuge in the private sphere. Our results enrich the interdisciplinarity of MSR research, confirm the findings outlined in CRM literature, and provide monasteries with a better understanding of their customers.

    ABSTRACT: This study examines the impact of four dimensions of spirit at work on organizational commitment: (1) engaging work, (2) sense of community, (3) mystical experience, and (4) spiritual connection. Eight hundred and forty participants from two universities – one faith-based and one secular – were surveyed using the Spirit at Work Scale and the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire. On average, employees at the faith-based university were significantly more committed to their institution and had higher spirit at work than did employees of the secular university (p Keywords: faculty; higher education; organizational commitment; organizational culture; spirit at work; workplace spirituality Document Type: Research Article DOI: Affiliations: 1: American Public University System, School of Management, P.O.

    ABSTRACT: Compared to other Title VII workplace discrimination protections, religious discrimination research has received little attention. This study compares workplace religious discrimination disputes with more common forms of discrimination claiming including race, sex, and sexual harassment. We analyzed 72 Federal Circuit Court of Appeals religious discrimination cases to ascertain what organizational roles both plaintiffs and perpetrators held, and at what organizational levels. We also examined differences in dispute resolution behaviors employed by both plaintiffs and perpetrators/defendant firms. Consistent with other forms of Title VII complaints, most plaintiffs in religious discrimination cases hold technical or line positions, and most perpetrators are the plaintiff’s direct supervisor. Also consistent, we found that plaintiffs utilize internal voicing processes prior to alerting an external body. However, we found differences, including evidence that plaintiffs themselves may obstruct complaint resolution and that some organizational policies contribute to religious discrimination complaints. Executive reactions to our findings conclude the article.

    ABSTRACT: This paper explores recent empirical findings that highlight the importance of decoration, particularly in forms that may be described as a kind of spirituality or spiritual expression, and the significance these findings have for thinking about how stakeholders cooperate to create value. We highlight how this phenomenon may become important for thinking about organizations – especially how spirituality may play a role in fostering stakeholder relations that generate more value for all those involved as well as limit transaction costs. Given our focus in exploring this phenomenon and highlighting decoration’s relevance, we focus on its core findings, outline connections to the spirituality and stakeholder theory literatures, and note promising directions for future research.

    ABSTRACT: This paper contributes to the growing debate on corporate governance by exploring this topic within the context of a large religious organization, the Catholic Church, at the diocesan level. Corporate governance is first distilled to identify its key constructs. Relying on source documents such as the Church’s own Code of Canon Law and the Form for the Quinquennial Report, this paper conceptualizes corporate governance within the Church’s organizational framework, focusing corporate governance specifically at the level of the individual – the diocesan bishop, rather than at the Supreme Pontiff or his Roman Curia; an ecclesiastical model of corporate governance is thus framed.
