For a variety of reasons, most people do not know that the preponderance of scientific and humanistic evidence demonstrates the existence of God. Since it does, organizations should proceed, in their policies and practices, under this assumption, just as they would any other scientific finding. This paper briefly summarizes the evidence for God from the fields of philosophy, physics, neuroscience, biology, psychology, and management. Next, materialism is critiqued, establishing that people who choose not to believe in God are doing so because their worldview does not allow for non-materialist explanations, even when the preponderance of evidence points in that direction. The paper concludes with an exploration of how organizations might function differently if the existence of God is acknowledged.
