Some studies show that spirituality and productivity are closely related to the workplace. Three main components in the spirituality of work are the meaning of work, the relationship with fellow-worker and the cultural values of the organization. This phenomenological study focuses on the meaning of work among millennials. As an exploratory study, using phenomenological analysis, it found that millennials give meaning to work based on three important factors, namely, its individual meaningfulness, the fairness of treatment, and the balance between reward and level of work-demand. Millennial does not make income and personal development as their primary considerations but rather a more spiritual side of work visà-vis meaning and support one finds in the office. This exploratory study suggests some important ramifications for dealing with millennials in the work place.
Key words: Balance / fairness / meaning of work / individual meaningfulness / spirituality of work
