The intent of this paper is to account for the most recent philosophical shift occurring within organizational life away from the modern philosophical preference towards secularization, and the corresponding focus on technical competence, as posited by Fordism, to a philosophical shift that inculcates endemic religious and spiritual beliefs. The impetus for this change can be best understood by using psychological and sociological paradigms including groups of individuals whose collective human agentic action (humans making choices as groups and imposing those choices on the world) and social movements theory as an attestation of the unwillingness of many to lead a bi-furcated life which ignores the endemic human emotions, religious beliefs and human values. The paper resolves by providing antidotal evidence within the marketplace of[A1] employees who collectively act as agents of a social movement integrating faith and work.
