Özet

Organizational spirituality is a phenomenon that nourishes both the private lives of employees who work in the social context and makes their working lives meaningful (Ashmos and Duchon, 2000). When many people deeply integrate their spirituality and their work, it leads to positive changes both in their relationships and their effectiveness (Fry, 2003). Thinking that the organizations meet their needs will lead to the formation and continuation of the psychological contract. Employees who were satisfied with the role and performance of the organization showed a positive relationship with their organizational commitment and job satisfaction attitudes (Pierce and Jussila, 2011: 59, Milliman, Czaplewski and Ferguson, 2003). The purpose of this study is to examine the organizational commitment and the mediating effect of their job satisfaction on the psychological contract behavior of employees' organizational spirituality levels. The research community constitutes a public hospital operating in the health sector. As the psychological contract scale, a scale developed by Millward and Hopkins (1998) consisting of 2 dimensions and 33-items are used. As the organizational spirituality scale, a scale developed by Milliman et al. (2003) consisting of 3 dimensions and 21 items are used. Path analysis was used to test the hypotheses established. The analysis was performed using the Mplus 7 program. According to the results of the analysis, organizational commitment of the employees and their job satisfaction were found to be statistically significant in the effect of employees' organizational spirituality levels on psychological contract behaviors.
