The Routledge Companion to Management and Workplace Spirituality provides readers with a broad, cutting-edge overview of the discipline of management spirituality and religion (MSR).

Marques has gathered leading scholars from around the world who share their insights and research on important topics such as linking spirituality and religion, cultural influences on workplace spirituality, mindfulness, and managing spiritually averse people. The volume also covers each of the major religions from both East and West, as well as leadership and spirituality, and issues related to linking spirituality to ethics, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility.

This volume will prove invaluable to any student or researcher looking for a comprehensive survey of the field of MSR.
