Religion and Integrity in the Workplace: A Controversial Study


Do god-fearing, church-going people make better employees? Are the religious or spiritual more honest and responsible? In a word, "no," according to a recent paper based on studies done by a professor of social sciences in Northern California. In fact, he found that "Organizational and interpersonal deviance in the workplace correlate with religiosity."

In layman's terms, that means the more religious you are, the more likely you are to lie, cheat and steal at work -- although you just might have a little more integrity than your non-religious colleagues.
