This research aims to study the impact of internal marketing on employee satisfaction. It was conducted on several administrative levels employees from banking sector. The research also aims to find out the impact of independent variables namely, in-house training, hiring, rewards, internal communication, salaries and motivation of the organization, on the dependent variable, which is the employee satisfaction. 322 copies of the designed questionnaire were distributed to employees from various levels in Sudanese banks. However, 250 copies of the questionnaire were recovered, and this is 77.6 % of the total number of the distributed copies. The results show that the organization culture has a strong impact on the employee’s satisfaction. This variable came first among other variables, followed by the variables about incentives and rewards regarding the impact on the dependent variable employees. On the other hand, the rest of variables showed a weak impact on the dependent variable either due to lack of employee’s interest, or the lack of their awareness regarding the importance of these variables and the need to apply them in order to improve the performance of employees and increase their efficiency and effectiveness at work. Convenience sampling technique was used to collect data from various Sudanese bank customers in Khartoum; Data was analyzed using SPSS.16.

AN EMPIRICAL STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF INTERNAL MARKET ORIENTATION ON FIRM PERFORMANCE: THE CASE OF COMMERCIAL BANKS IN GHANA (Published)
This paper provides empirical evidence on the effect of internal market orientation on the performance of commercial banks in Ghana. We adopt a quantitative research approach to analyse the relationship between internal market orientation and firm performance. A sample size of 136 marketing and human resource personnel of 15 randomly selected commercial banks in Ghana is used. Pearson’s correlation test and ordinary least square regression are used in data analysis. A strong positive relationship between internal market orientation and firm performance is found, r (131) = .863, p < .05. Similarly, internal market orientation significantly predicts firm performance at 5% significance level (t = 19.37, p = .000), with a variation of 74.4% accounted by internal market orientation. This implies that the performance of commercial banks is not limited to external marketing activities. Based on this evidence, commercial banks are expected to improve the effectiveness of their internal marketing endeavours to better leverage external market opportunities
