Unethical business practices are gaining wide attention in the business circle, academia and government. Majorly, codes of ethics, codes of practice, codes of conduct and punitive measures have been variously applied to control the menace. However, despite the fact that spiritual values influences ones perception, choices, actions and relationship with others positively, and the fact that spiritually virtuous people act in Godly ways, spirituality as a control measure for unethical behaviour and business have not been sufficiently explored. Consequently, this study investigated the relationship among behavioural characteristics of a spiritual person, spiritual values, spiritual virtues, ethical behaviour and ethical business. Survey data from 152 respondents were analysed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation. The results revealed that a spiritual persons behavioural characteristics, spiritual values, spiritual virtues, ethical behaviour and ethical business are significantly related. Thus, we conclude that aside the punitive measures, the internalization and practice of spiritual values by businessmen/women will ensure spiritually virtuous and ethical businessmen/women and ethical businesses.
