Abstract

The religion concept, which is being discussed since years, exists since the beginning of the communities and reflects usually on people’s attitudes at social enviroment. Especially employees’ ethical values, religious perspectives, manners can be easily understood in the workplace. Although social pressure causes people to be patient against negative consequences as a value at the Turkish Culture, the employee voice which consists of criticising organisation in a proactively way or being participant for organisational businesses can be affected by employees’ religious attitudes. Focusing on employee behaviour which is a main reason for all the organisation to work healthy, employee voice helps managers to measure the degree of some variables like organizational sense of belonging, organizational commitment, organizational citizenship behaviour and role behaviour of employees. The religious attitudes has four dimensions like emotional behavioural, relational and cognitive attitudes. It is impossible for an employee not to have stress when there is a conflict between his/her religious attitudes and judgements about the work or workplace. On that condition the responsibility of managers is to determine which dimension of the religious attitudes reflects which kind of employee voice behaviour and to protect conflicts all around the organisation. Accordingly, with this research the relationship between employees’ religious attitudes and employee voice is researched and the results are interpreted at the findings section to make suggestions for the managers.
