Religion at the workplace

An increasing number of companies in Chicago, and across the nation, are hiring workplace chaplains. They’ll chat with workers, check in to see how they’re doing, and stop to pray if an employee wishes. We wondered what these chaplains do, how employees react, and how much religion is appropriate in the workplace. Steve Hefta oversees chaplains in Chicagoland and four Midwest states for Marketplace Chaplains U.S.A., one of the biggest companies supplying this service. We also talk with Mark Laboe, the Associate Vice President for University Ministry at DePaul University. (Flickr/ButterflySha)
