This study encompassed a quantitative correlational research design to explore the relationship between spirituality (theism, self-transcendence) and workplace deviance (organizational deviance, interpersonal deviance). Instruments used to conduct the analysis included the Daily Spiritual Experience Scale (DSES) and a Measure of Workplace Deviance, offered in an online survey form and shared via Facebook, LinkedIn, and email. Responses (N = 154) from the correlational analysis revealed a statistically significant negative relationship between spirituality (theism, self-transcendence) and workplace deviance (organizational deviance, interpersonal deviance). Additional analysis was completed with a one-way ANOVA to examine the differences in workplace deviance (organizational deviance, interpersonal deviance) based on spirituality, theism, and self-transcendence groups. The subsequent findings support the results of the correlational analysis that indicate as spirituality (theism, self-transcendence) increases, workplace deviance (organizational deviance, interpersonal deviance) decreases. Implications of the research and recommendations for future research are included.
