Authenticity in Employment Relations

A Theology of the Workplace Analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Authenticity is developed and deployed as a criterion variable for a theology of the workplace inquiry that combines theory and methodological development with data analysis. The goal is to show that social science method can offer an empirically valid, prophetic dimension to the study of employment and work parameters in light of religious teachings on the social question at national, organizational, or firm-specific levels. The function of a criterion variable is described, noting that the switch from a dependent variable approach introduces an open-system dynamism to social science. Authenticity is reviewed to better understand its utility as an emergent, yet verifiable, criterion outcome of prior conditions. Data analysis takes the form of Roman Catholic and Quaker social teachings identified as positive correlations or contrasts. This approach offers a rigorous method bridge between theology and allied fields for the common cause of assessing authenticity in firm, organization, and higher system functions.
