productivity and performance and improvement of its financial index. Historically, major attention to spirituality
is originated from religions. Although for many people spirituality at work is not related to any religion, but
religion is the best way to reinforce spiritual dimensions of people to the extent in which spirituality will not
reach its maturity without religiosity. In a country like Iran in which 95% of people have a single religion and
majority of people are committed to religious mottoes. No other tool or instrument can be more effective than
religion in spreading spirituality. One of the effective ways in solving financial problems in current organizations
is to modify and improve consumption of the organization financial resources by employees because considering
the strong connection between spirituality and avoiding dissipation, being committed to religion and spirituality
might be helpful and life-saving. Applying this approach, all organizations’ managers and employees, especially
governmental institutes which are provided by public resources, will consider consumption model improvement
