Abstract

The authors studied the relationships between adult workers' spiritual well-being and job satisfaction. Two hundred participants completed 2 instruments: the Spiritual Well-Being Scale (C. W. Ellison & R. F. Paloutzian, 1982) and the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire Short Form (D. J. Weiss, R. V. Dawis, G. W. England, & L. H. Lofquist, 1967). A bivariate correlational analysis showed spiritual well-being, religious well-being, and existential well-being to be positively related to job satisfaction for this sample. With a forced-entry multiple regression analysis, overall spiritual well-being was found to have a moderate influence, existential well-being had a much stronger influence, and religious well-being had a minimal influence all on general job satisfaction.
