Product Overview

These 14 vignettes have been developed to facilitate a discussion on the place of spirituality or religion in the workplace. Developed primarily from public sources, but often based on real companies (with disguised/fictionalized characters), these stories include situations with a variety of religious affiliations as well as hot-button topics (e.g., sexual orientation and pro-life versus pro-choice).

Learning Objectives

What is management's role in facilitating or allowing any vestiges of spirituality/religion in the workplace? What are the boundaries around what is allowable and not allowable in expressions of spirituality/religion? What right does a company (or government office) have to interject spiritual or religious overtones into a business and, conversely, what rights do employees have to express their own spirituality or religious beliefs? What are the rights or duties at stake in certain situations? What principles are involved in managerial decision making? How might a company's self-image and mission be affected by allowing?or creating?an atmosphere of religion or spirituality? Why would a company want to infuse a sense of a faith-based initiative in its culture?
