This exploratory study investigated the relationship between spirituality, religiousness and work values using a sample of N= 122 participants. Nonparametric partial correlation revealed that intrinsic religiousness was positively correlated with cognitive work values, extrinisic personal religiousness was negatively correlated with affective work values, and spirituality was not associated with any category of work values. The effects of gender were statistically controlled by a series of Spearman Rho correlations. In our sample, there were gender differences, with females reporting higher levels of extrinsic personal religiousness and lower levels of daily spiritual experiences and instrumental, cognitive and affective work values. These findings provide important implications for designing coaching programs, with the ultimate goal of establishing work-life balance.
