Workplace spirituality & emotional intelligence are emerging concepts in management literature, however there are very less studies that have explored the relationship between the two. The present study bridges that gap by presenting a model illustrating the relationship between the two through path analysis approach. The study was conducted on 128 employees working at various capacities in service sector in and around Chandigarh region in North India. Based upon path analysis, it was found that emotional intelligence acts as an antecedent to workplace spirituality which is further linked to job satisfaction. The study has used only a small sample size, so generalized conclusion should be made with caution. However, the study shows that as emotional intelligence acts as an antecedent to workplace spirituality, the organizations can focus on the development of emotional intelligence for improving workplace spirituality, which will further improve job satisfaction.
