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. Engiand. & 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.
