Change in lifestyle, reduction of social intimate
relationships, material affiliations, decline of spirituality, and negligence
of heart are among the factors distracting the inner peace. Today, the human
generation looks for a way to achieve inner peace in the stressful, depressing,
and distressing modern world. Spiritual freedom as one of the excellent human
soul needs extends the horizon of human vision beyond the material world.
Therefore, if today’s humans return to spirituality, most of their sufferings
will end. The present research focuses on the two variables, namely organizational
spirituality and happiness to investigate the relationship between these two
variables in one of the public organizations in Golestan province.
Organizational spirituality questionnaire and Fordyce happiness inventory (FHI) were used for data collection. Following this, Pearson
correlation test and stepwise regression were used for data analysis. The
findings revealed that the organizational spirituality leads to happiness in
the studied sample and organizational spirituality components are significantly
related to many happiness components.
