Little has been discussed about workplace spirituality in the organizational sciences. The western  researchers and organizations have shown considerable interest in understanding the basics of  spirituality and its benefits for workplace. However, still this concept continues to be subjective and not  much has been explored in the Indian context. This study while adding to the literature of research on  Indian organizations also tries to throw some light on the link between spirituality and business. The  research is conducted on 100 employees of ITC ltd. to find the impact of workplace spirituality on  Organization Citizenship Behavior. The data was analyzed using SPSS and it was found that there  exists a positive relationship between workplace spirituality and four dimensions of OCB -Altruism,  Conscientiousness, Courtesy, and Civic virtue and negative relationship with Sportsmanship on ITC  employees. It is concluded that spirituality if developed amongst employees in workplaces can make  them contribute more to the organizations.
