Spirituality in organizational sector is quite different from its traditional meaning. In organizational sector, spirituality means the work ethics or how the employees value their job and their workplace. Although many studies conducted in the area of spirituality and its relation to organization motivation, culture, leadership etc, very few studies have been conducted to find out the relationship of organizational spirituality and organizational commitment, especially in India. In this regard the present study was planned to find out the relationship of organizational spirituality and organizational commitment among employees from different age group working in Government jobs in Delhi Municipal Corporation. A total of 120 samples was selected using purposive sampling technique for the study. The study included Organizational Commitment Questionnaire by Meyer & Allen (1990) and Spirituality at Work Scale by Kinjerski, & Skrypnek,. (2006b). The results of the study satisfied to the three hypotheses formulated such as- the first hypothesis: relationship exists between spirituality and organizational commitment (r=0.35) for the age group 25 to 35 years of old whereas the correlation is (r=0.60) among the male participants from the age group 36 to 59 years of age. This also satisfies the second hypothesis that: increase with age will increase the spirituality and organizational commitment among the employees. Similarly the third hypothesis: male and female participants are different in their workplace spirituality and commitment attributes in organizational sector. From the study it can be concluded that employees with increased age are more spiritual and committed towards their organization than to the lower age group people, which might be due to the job loss or few chances for job turnover.
