This study examined the employees' perceptions of workplace spirituality. Although multiple cultures are forced to work together, very little is known about the impact of workplace spirituality on job performance. For this study, it was not feasible to conduct a global study so the focus was specific to business professionals located in the United States. The purpose of the study was to access employees' perceptions of spirituality in the workplace as it relates to job performance. A research questionnaire (survey) was the sole source of data for this study. The survey was divided into three different categories: demographics, values, and religion and spirituality. There were a total of 25 questions presented to 34 participants. Results of the survey aided in answering research questions: (a) Is there a perceived positive relationship between employees being able to practice spirituality in the workplace and increased job performance? (b) Does workplace productivity increase as a result of integrating spirituality in the workplace as perceived by the employee? and (c) Does workplace spirituality have a positive effect on employees‘ attitudes? Recommendations were directed to organizations and suggestions for future research are also included.
