The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relation between business and religion by the case of “Quaker codes and business activities.” To clarify, the topic of religion as covered in this paper is not concerned with the personal philosophies or religions of management executives. Instead, this paper conceptualizes the role of religion as a framework or cosmology that exists inside companies and their surrounding communities. On both conscious and unconscious levels, this structure dictates people’s behavior. The paper explores the impact that religion has on management; that is, it attempts to elucidate how an implicit system of belief interacts with and underlies practical behavior in practices of management. In particular, this paper examines the relationship between Quaker thought and management. Even though Quakers are a small, unique Protestant denomination, they played a significant role in the progress of the British Industrial Revolution, mainly in the steelmaking and railway industries. Furthermore, they have continued to play a considerable role in historical turning points in the generations following. This paper will focus on studies in Birmingham and York in the UK, and it will also make use of literature on the history of management
