Abstract

This mixed method study aims to examine the relationship between big-five personality traits and workplace spirituality from a managerial perspective by analyzing its potential effects on management. In the quantitative step, the cross-sectional survey was employed as the data collection tool, and the data were obtained from a sampling group determined through the simple random sampling technique. Further, the qualitative part of the study was designed as a purposive sampling technique. The quantitative research data were obtained from 238 participants working in a public university in Turkey as lecturers. The qualitative data were obtained by interviewing a group of 11 people from the same sample of participants working as administrators at the same university. The findings indicate that the harmony between the perception of personality structures and workplace spirituality has an important function in the adoption of workplace values by the employees.
