In this descriptive/correlational research, statistical population consists of all the employees of education offices in the West of Mazandaran Province. Of this, 140 subjects were randomly selected as study samples using cluster sampling method. To measure participants, we used Inventory of spiritual leadership developed by Fry et al. (2005), and a designed quality of work life questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and multivariate regression analyses. According to the statistical results, we found a significant relationship between spiritual leadership (vision, altruistic love, faith, meaning, membership, organizational commitment, productivity) and quality of working life (p<0.01), and these seven variables together were able to explain 34% of variations in quality of working life. Among these predictors, “hope/faith” factor showed the highest effect on prediction of quality of working life among employees.
