A Little Faith Is A Big Deal On The Job
Lyric Wallwork

While it may seem like many CEOs and corporate boards have been playing fast and loose with the bottom line, spiritual concerns dominate the daily lives of most American workers, according to a new survey from ACT-1 Group, a human-resources company. About 55% of those polled said spirituality has a "very significant" or an "important" role on the job; only 28% said it plays a minor role or no role. Women, Southerners and those aged 35 to 64 care most about spirituality on the job. But respondents in all groups reported an increase in spirituality since 9/11/01. More nonwhites than whites (59% vs. 54%) were likely to think spirituality is "very significant" or "important" at work. And, perhaps surprisingly, 58% of those with postgraduate degrees---the people with the highest levels of education ---were most likely to value spirituality in the workplace.
