Resumen

Objetivo: determinar la relación entre la espiritualidad en el ambiente laboral y el compromiso organizacional. Método: estudio descriptivo correlacional, la muestra estuvo conformada por 156 empleados del oeste de Puerto Rico. Como instrumento se utilizaron las sub-escalas de la dimensión de la espiritualidad en la unidad de trabajo y la organización de la escala de espiritualidad en el lugar de trabajo de Ashmos y Duchon y la escala de compromiso organizacional de Rosario-Hernández y Rovira-Millán. Resultados: existe relación significativa de manera inversa entre la espiritualidad en el lugar de trabajo y el compromiso organizacional; sin embargo, no se encontraron diferencias significativas entre los años de servicio y la espiritualidad en el lugar de trabajo. Conclusión: la relación inversa entre la espiritualidad en el lugar de trabajo y el compromiso organizacional resulta como consecuencia de la percepción negativa de los empleados ante las nuevas políticas organizacionales en Puerto Rico.

Palabras clave:
