Abstract

Feeling of meaning at work and existence of unity between work and life are among concepts which are proposed recently in organizational spirituality paradigm. Accordingly, investigating elements of organizational spirituality and their effect on organizational setting is important. Current study is carried out focusing on specifying the role of organizational spirituality on teachers’ job stress. The research method is correlational and its' goal is applied. The whole population of the study was 326 which includes all Birjands' first grade high school teachers in 2014-2015 academic year. 196 persons were chosen from the population as the sample group based on stratified random sampling. To gather the required data two questionnaires of (Milliman, Czaplewski and Ferguson, 2003) organizational spirituality and (Doa, 1994) job stress questionnaire were used. The result of the study while confirming the negative effect of (the feeling of meaning at work) and (the feeling of relatedness at work|) on job stress revealed that alignment of personal values with organization does not have an impact on the rate of persons' stress at work.
