Abstract

Can managers afford to be oblivious to the religious commitments of their employees, or is religion an important factor in management? Are all religions the same, or is religion an important form of diversity that managers need to take into account? This article explains why managers need to know about how members of different religions, owing to their different cultural environments and upbringing, come with different motivations, morals, and identities, and makes the case for greater attention in management to the topic of religion.
