Quotation Mayrhofer, Wolfgang, Steinbereithner, Martin, Rapp, Marco Leander, Reiss, Lea Katharina, Zellhofer, Dominik. 2021. Religion and career success. A country-comparative study. In: Reimagining Faith and Management. The Impact of Faith in the Workplace, Hrsg. Pio, E., Kilpatrick, R., Pratt, T. 17-31. London: Routledge.




Empirical evidence linking religion and spirituality to career-related aspects is scarce, particularly with regard to a more global picture. This chapter responds to this gap by analysing the effects of the religious composition of a country and its proportion of religiously active inhabitants on two dimensions of career success, that is, positive impact and financial success. Our data stems from a collaborative effort of the 5C group (Cross-Cultural Collaboration on Contemporary Careers) covering 23 countries across the world suggesting a positive relationship between religious aspects and positive impact and an absent or slightly positive relationship with financial success.
