The influence of spirituality in organizational contexts has attracted a significant and growing number of scholars to understand whether and how spirituality can influence workplace behaviour. This paper aims to offer a critical reflection of the scientific literature related to spirituality at work. The corpus under analysis, identified through the SCOPUS database, consists of 359 entries. After having coded the textual material, a content analysis was conducted. From the analysis, it emerges how spirituality has the power to impact on both group and organizational levels, manifesting itself in behaviours and in attitudes with which we look at ourselves, others, and the world. This study represents the first review in Italian of the scientific literature dedicated to the theme of spirituality applied to occupational contexts.
