Previous studies showed that the religious and spiritual factors have influenced an individual’s resilience in facing lifes problems and stress. Greene & Conrad (2002) have linked religiosity and spirituality to resilience, and some studies (Post & Wade, 2009) have observed the importance of religiosity and spirituality in coping with demanding life problems and stress. Hence, this study is conducted to look at the relationship between religiosity/spirituality to employees’ resilience who lost their jobs due to termination of contract service. A total of 41 employees of the National Service Training Department (NSTD) were involved in this study. Initial hypothesis proposes that there is a significant relationship between increases in each dimension of religiosity/spirituality and enhanced resilience and this is supported by data of the research. Questionnaire used were adapted from the Brief Multidimensional Measure of Religiousity/Spirituality Model (Fetzer Institute/NIA, 1999) and the Resilience Scale Model (Wagnild & Young, 1993). Findings of the study showed that all dimension of religiosity/spirituality, as such spiritual experience, spiritual values/beliefs, religious activities, willingness to forgive, positive and negative coping attributes have a significant relationship on employees’ resilience. Based on findings of the research, several practices and training designs are recommended.
