Abstract: Organisational management is one of the contemporary delinquents, most of the organisations have to address. Issues like job satisfaction, employee commitment and employee performance are crucial factors which may affect organisational climate. Religiosity and spirituality are prominent and actual factors that can speed up satisfaction, commitment and performance. A substantial research gap connecting religiosity and spirituality with job satisfaction, employee commitment and employee performance exists. This study reconnoitres the link between religiosity, spirituality, job satisfaction, employee commitment and performance by using quantile regression. The study adopted a survey method to collect data from teachers from six different streams. Findings of the current study suggest that spirituality has no influence on employee performance but endorse the linkages between job satisfaction, employee commitment and performance.

Keywords: spirituality; religiosity; job satisfaction; job commitment; job performance; quantile regression.
