The decline of attention to the facade of modernity and the inclination toward spirituality and theism in the third millennium is the evidence of human natural tendency toward spirituality, theism, and faith. This is, also, to some extent connected to discussions of identity and semantics in organizations. This paper tries to review the works of researchers on spirituality and theism along with specific focus on the conception of theism and spirituality in Quran and Nahjol-Balagha; providing suggestions and implications applicable to organizational issues. The review reveals that spirituality and theism are significant for one’s sense of integrity, consciousness, and organizational identity.
