Spirituality And Vocation: A Survey Of Service Workers From An Occupational Science Perspective

The purpose of this study is to explore whether relationships existed between spirituality experienced at work, demographic data, roles with which people identify, occupations that reflect becoming a worker, and occupations in which people engage at work. The results of the study revealed that PSI can be applied reliably and validly in a research tool. There was no significant differences in spirituality as experienced at work between genders, age groups, number of years on the job, perception of spirituality, importance of religion, experience of illness or injury that prevented participants from working or the use of rehabilitative services. Statistically significant relationships occurred between spirituality experienced at work and roles with which people identified. Significant relationships occurred between spirituality as experienced on the job and occupations people complete to become a worker. Significant relationships occurred between spirituality and occupations in which people participate at work.
