Workplace spirituality has gained attention of researchers in last two decades.  Material investment is no more considered to be an enough ingredient towards getting desired outcomes from the employees. Work Values is also taken into consideration by the culture, anthropology, sociology and organizational behavior research arenas. The present work is collaborating the two constructs in a moderation relationship to check their interactive effect on the job satisfaction of employees. More specifically, this paper will contribute by incorporating the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Values as a moderator in relationship of workplace spirituality and job Satisfaction. The data for this purpose was obtained through self-administered questionnaires in a survey form public and private banks of Pakistan. Total 450 questionnaires were distributed resulting in 49.78% response rate and 224 questionnaires are checked for hypothesized relationships. The results of the study revealed that Workplace Spirituality is a strong predictor of Job Satisfaction. Intrinsic values have also found to moderate the relationship between workplace spirituality and Job satisfaction in such a way that this relation becomes stronger in presence of high intrinsic values employees. Extrinsic values have also moderated the Workplace Spirituality and Job Satisfaction relationship but its impact was negative. Lastly implications for managers are discussed and future research directions are given
