This study aims to determine the effectiveness of a Spirituality Enhancement Program in improving employee satisfactoriness or job performance as observed and evaluated by peers in a company setting within Metro Manila. The treatment of the program is offered as another alternative for motivating employees in the workplace. Quasi-experimental-nonequivalent control group design was used for this study. The instruments used were Minnesota Satisfactoriness Scale, Religious Orientation Scale, and Religious Activity Checklist. Then, pretest, immediate and delayed posttest of these instruments were administered to five (5) respondents of the experimental group and six (6) respondents for the control group. The statistical tests for quantitative analysis were median scores, weighted mean scores, t-test for independent and dependent samples, Mann-Whitney-U, and Wilcoxon T. Then, for the qualitative analysis, frequency of responses were considered in the ROS, RAC, and program evaluations. The results showed that the Spirituality Enhancement Program was effective to bring about changes in the ratings of employee satisfactoriness. However, the improved spirituality of employees needs ongoing spiritual activities for it to grow. Therefore, the findings suggest that satisfactoriness and/or work with spirituality can work together given the duration of time to develop and adapt in the corporate setting in the Philippines.
