The present study explores if spirituality could predict job performance. A survey of 95 branch managers is conducted. The basic assumption behind sampling was that spirituality is the last need in the Maslow (1971) hierarchy of needs which is independent of religious ideology as measured by Rojas (2002). Correlation is used to ascertain the degree of association. Spirituality and four of its dimensions are found to have a significant relationship with organizational commitment, job satisfaction and position performance. Focusing on the banking sector management, it is analyzed that spirituality increases the organizational commitment. Thus, a sector plagued with high employee turnover may enhance spirituality at work place to gain organizational commitment.
