Corporate brand identity and employee brand citizenship behaviour: A conceptual framework

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This research paper aims to explore and identify the impact of corporate identity on brand citizenship behaviour within retail organisations. The study analyses the influence of corporate identity of an organisation, and more particularly on the employees’ desire to engage in brand supporting behaviours. Relationships were identified between corporate identity, internal communication and composites of employee perception of corporate identity - resulting as determining influences on employee behaviour intentions. These relationships are presented as a conceptual model that depicts the influence of corporate identity on employee brand citizenship behaviours. The study makes contributions to the employee branding, services marketing, and organisational citizenship literature, but its main contribution is to extend the corporate identity literature into a new area of employee behaviour through internal communication.
