Abstract: Several studies have proposed a strategic influence of workplace spirituality on various individual and organisational outcomes, but few studies have empirically tested the relationship. The current study examines the effect of workplace spirituality on two important job outcomes, i.e., affective organisational commitment and job satisfaction. The responses are collected from 480 IT professionals working in various organisations located in several Indian cities. Structural equation modelling is used to analyse the data and test the hypotheses. The findings report a positive influence of workplace spirituality on employee's affective organisational commitment and job satisfaction. In the concluding part, results are discussed, both theoretical and business implications are delineated, limitations of the study are highlighted and future directions are proposed.
Keywords: affective organisational commitment; job satisfaction; workplace spirituality; job outcomes; India; information technology; structural equation modelling; SEM.
