• Abstract

    The modern workplace fumbles to perform progressively as there is a surge in work stress (WS) and turnover intention (TI) among employees. Unlike many prevailing stress coping techniques like therapies, employee wellness programmes, meditation, etcetera, workplace spirituality (WPS) could be a pragmatic strategy. Firms can indoctrinate WPS in the workplace to deal with work stress and prevent burnout, exhaustion, and turnover. The motto of the study is to provide collective evidence from the existing literature on the dimensions of WPS and find how it can be indoctrinated into management practices to cope with work stress and employee turnover. The authors established a conceptual relationship, probing how workplace spirituality dimensions could be aligned with work stress and turnover intention. Bibliometrics divulge that many countries are presently working on WPS and its significance for organisational performance.
