    ABSTRACT: Human life is more meaningful and fulfilling only when lived and shared in healthy group relations. This way of understanding life is a fundamental influence and concomitant to the dynamics of building structures of association and wholesome cooperation. Human relations extend to all dimensions of life-hence: to live is to interact and, to interact is to relate. With the methods of phenomenology, this paper qualitatively analyzed the cultural foundations and religious fabrics of human relations. Culture and religious import of human relations underlie African peoples’ world-view, values and patterns of interaction, communal living, hospitality, etc. In the industrial aspect, religious beliefs and practices, such as God’s providence, intercessory prayer, staff fellowship, thanksgiving service, and retreat, are veritable tools for peace, motivation and viable operations.
