Background: The growing interest in workplace spirituality has led to the development of a new paradigm in organizational science. The present study aims to provide a structural model for workplace spirituality, occupational ethics, and organizational loyalty among nurses at Ardabil hospitals.
Materials and Methods: The statistical population, in this cross-sectional descriptive study, was composed of nurses working at Ardabil hospitals, from which 200 employees were selected by the random sampling technique, who responded to the research instruments. The research instruments included questionnaires about workplace spirituality, occupational ethics, and organizational loyalty. Data were analyzed by the Pearson correlation and structural equation modeling using SPSS-25 AMOS-24 software.
Results: Results showed that there was a significant positive correlation between the variables of workplace spirituality and organizational loyalty (P < 0.001). In addition, an indirect effect was confirmed between these variables as mediated by occupational ethics (P <0.05).
Conclusion: The results of this study confirmed the appropriateness of the model for workplace spirituality, occupational ethics, and organizational loyalty among nurses at Ardabil hospitals. Upon an improvement in the spirituality climate, managers would be able to promote organizational loyalty as well as individual and organizational performance.
