    For all stakeholders, it is necessary to have virtuous men in business life in order to establish a peaceful, successful and productive business environment. Human factor is the golden key of success not only for organizations but also for societies. It has been clearly seen that the spiritual side of human factor should not be neglected if the objective is to maintain sustainable development while establishing a balanced economic system and a peaceful society. It is because long term sustainable development can only be achieved through virtuous men. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the relationship between competencies of virtuous man and performance. The initial model of virtuous man has been derived from Sabahattin Zaim’s “exemplary wholesome man” model. The competencies are determined as a result of several workshops and focus group studies. A field study had also been conducted in Istanbul based on the data collected from 2585 workers and managers. The findings of this research revealed some empirical evidences related to the expected relationship between the competencies of virtuous man and performance.
