Gallup’s 2003 poll found that only 19% of UK workers would describe themselves as ‘engaged’ at work, with a vast 61% ‘not engaged’ and 20% actively ‘disengaged.’ This is a tragedy: we spend the majority of our waking lives at work, and meaningful work is one of Layard’s 7 Happiness Factors. Research has shown that people who are able to experience their work as having a spiritual dimension are likely to find it more fulfilling. Today sees the launch of the Foundation for Workplace Spirituality, a not for profit organisation dedicated to raising spiritual awareness and consciousness in the workplace. Our aim is to provide a forum through which everyone can network, connect and engage in conversation that advances the raising of spiritual consciousness, awareness and practice at work. We will do this by acting as a mouthpiece for the many different initiatives in this sphere, by convening a variety of events and networks, and by furthering practical research into what spirit at work really means. Please join us.
