This chapter explores the import of spirituality for the theory and practice of management. The first part focuses on how spirituality is defined, providing context for the discussion of its significance in the world of work. The second part addresses workplace spirituality, its evolution and importance to the future of work. In doing so, it considers the impact of technological disruptions, issues of employee well-being, and changes resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. The third part highlights the role of spirituality in this context and the potential for a shift in praxis as a means of facilitating a more holistic approach to the development of people and organisations.
