Abstract: India is renowned across the globe for its rich heritage, culture and spirituality. But how far has the country been able to make productive and beneficial use of its richness, is still a very questionable subject. Since ages, India has been a leader in spirituality;it was a practice and perception that mostly the elderly people of society follow the spiritual path because the working population can’t spare time from their busy and productive schedule. Attention was never given to the fact that spirituality, if rightfully practiced, can increase the productivity of an individual as well as organization many folds. With special emphasis on the Spiritual faith of Indian masses,this study isprecisely aimed at addressing the reasons and outcomes of spirituality at workplace and the ways and methods of implementing Workplace spirituality in the organizational environment. This concept oriented paper is to provide for a deep understanding as to why and how the individuals at work must practice and preach their spiritual values at work, leading to remarkable results in improvingthe overall productivity of the workforce and the organization alike. It also extends an aid for the economic issues like Brain Drain, Low GDP and increased employee turnover as an inevitable outcome of the lack of management attention towards employee wellness and their spiritual growth at work. The study helps to embrace the essence of a splendid professional life for all working individuals in the light of Workplace Spirituality, promoting peace, happiness and health in the working atmosphere within an organization, which in turn leads to greater job-satisfaction along with a better sense of job-fulfillment.
