Many of us know that there’s more to life than profitability. In many ways, our spirituality gives our everyday life meaning. But spirituality can represent many things, including religion, ethics, values, and other core beliefs that influence our lives.

Incorporating spirituality in business can create better work environments for employees and further success. Today, we'll be taking a closer look at what spirituality is, why it's essential for business, and what you can do to apply spirituality to your business.


Defining Spirituality


What is spirituality? For some, spirituality may be tied to faith, religion, or the belief in something bigger than ourselves. For others, spirituality may represent our core values, ethics, and the meaning of life. Everyone experiences and uniquely describes spirituality, as our core belief systems influence nearly every decision we make.


Why is Spirituality in Business Important?


Our spirituality influences nearly everything we do and believe in. It is incorporated into our natural value system, which should always be nurtured in our personal and professional lives. There are many benefits to incorporating spirituality in the business, including better work environments and increased productivity, profitability, innovation, and teamwork.


4 Ways to Apply Spirituality to Your Business


Here are four ways to apply spirituality to your business:


1. Bring Your Values to Your Business

Your business should always reflect your core values. It can be easy to be swept up in profitability and success metrics when it comes to business. However, practicing mindfulness and bringing your core beliefs to the workplace is vital for long-term success and happiness. Ask yourself what the mission statement of your company is? Do you want to provide innovation or new technology? Do you want to help people in their day-to-day lives? Do you want to leave the world better than the way you found it? The actions you take through your business will reflect the values that your business represents.


2. Practice Positivity and Mindfulness

Your mindset influences your perception of events, how well you deal with setbacks, your mental strength, and more. Practicing mindfulness and positivity can help you let go of the negative and embrace the positive in business. In addition, limiting frustration and learning from criticism or failure can help your business succeed and encompass your core values.


3. Maintain Ethics in Your Business Practices

One of the most impactful factors to your company’s public image is your business ethics. Have you ever avoided shopping with a specific business because of how they treat their workers or the environment? If you have, your perception of a business is shaped by its ethics and your core values. A company is nothing without its investors, shareholders, and customers. As a result, maintaining ethics in your business practice can increase profitability and customer retention. For example, one recent study showed that about 37 percent of customers were willing to pay up to 5 percent more for eco-friendly products and services.


4. Treat Others Well

We all know that we should treat others the way we want to be treated, but this simple concept is sometimes lost in business. Treating your employees and team well and taking the time to get to know them helps them feel valued and appreciated. Employees are one of the most valuable assets of every business, and treating them well increases productivity and retention. Bad management and bosses are some of the most prominent reasons employees quit their jobs.


The Bottom Line

Incorporating spirituality in business can improve productivity, profitability, and your work environment. There are many simple steps you can take to bring spirituality to your business for the benefit of all.


I hope that these four tips in bringing spirituality to your business help you succeed. Please reach out if you have any questions about spirituality in business.
