In this era of technological breakthroughs, increasing uncertainties and great scientific advances, where workers are compelled to work in their job whether they like it or not, there is a paradigm in the spiritual believes of the employees at the workplace as their values and attitudes have been taken over by their temptations to measure their worth in terms of their income and possessions. Today employees feel more pressured, demotivated, frustrated in comparison to the times earlier. Thus, there is an even more need for integration of workplace spirituality within an organization now than earlier. This paper focuses on the changing spiritual trend in the present competitive environment imposed by organizations due to its changing career aspirations, vision and mission and means to overcome these lofty objectives in line with people’s deepest spiritual beliefs and values. The capitalism concept that has degraded the cultural values, religious beliefs and traditions, should be aligned with the human-being’s virtues, strengths and goodness. The purpose of this research paper is to explore the current scenario of workplace spirituality in the 21st century in the Indian context, and is intended to develop and implement a framework for successful implementation of spirituality at work. It also stresses on the need to bring humanism back in the workplace that was overthrown by the corporate greed for profit.
