Some of the Recent Organizational Behavior Concepts as Precursors to Workplace Spirituality

Abstract

This paper addresses researchers' call for integrating workplace spirituality with organizational literature. This paper points out that self-interest transcendence is a common aspect in the workplace spirituality concept that emerged in the last decade and also in four OB concepts — transformational leadership, organizational citizenship behavior, organizational support, and procedural justice -that emerged in OB about two decades ago. Based on this common aspect of self-interest transcendence and the temporal precedence of these four OB concepts' emergence, it indicates that these four OB concepts constitute a precursor of workplace spirituality. It places workplace spirituality in the larger context of OB and outlines the associated research and practice implications.
