The alleged usefulness of the people aspect of TQM's is essential than its technical side in influencing the presumed utility of customers. Thus, the successful execution of TQM programs profoundly depends on the motive, abilities, engagement, and role-powers of the participants in an organization. TQM is not just about solving problem but more about satisfying clients. Hence, this study investigated the interaction effect of soft Total Quality Management, employees’ Job Satisfaction and spirituality at work.
