Making Work Meaningful


On my way to work, I:

1. Walk with a spring in my step. I look forward to it.

2. Stroll. I like work but I'm in no hurry to get there!

3. Practically sleepwalk. Another day, another dollar.

4. Trudge. Agony awaits.

Take the quiz.

Spirituality in the Workplace

"I am presently working for a large retail chain. This company has a dress code policy which allows for religious head coverings, but to wear one you must first submit a letter to personnel from your clergy stating the doctrinal basis of your need to wear the covering...Does my employer really have any business asking what my religion is or the details of why I am covering?"
