Faith-Friendly Research Projects

David Miller & Tim Ewest - March 2013

This paper seeks to offer a review of and constructive framing for workplace considerations and contexts, where increasing religious pluralism, opacity, and a desire for integration of faith and work is becoming more widespread. This paper also seeks to offer an organizational frame, by delineating and extending Miller’s (2007) original conception of a "faith-friendly" workplace, extending it into three other categories and providing an assessment rubric. As a whole, this paper seeks to point the way forward for scholars and organizations who are seeking to study, understand, and constructively respond to the growing interest in workplace spirituality, as part of diversity management and other organizational rubrics.
