Glory S. Etim, Imoh C. Uford


The study attempts to measure the contributions of sources of employee-based brand equity (EBBE) to the market performance of deposit money banks (DMBs) in Nigeria. A quantitative approach using self-administered questionnaires was adopted. Empirical data was drawn from 360 respondents (182 employees and 178 customers) in the six (6) geo-political zones in Nigeria. Structural Equation Modelling was used to analyse the hypothesized paths/relationships. The study found that out of the three sources of EBBE, brand commitment was the strongest predictor of overall EBBE. It also found that out of the three market performance indicators, customers’ intention to pay a price premium was the most dependent on EBBE sources. In relation to employees/customers relationship, this paper provides evidence for issues of potential research and managerial interest. Practically, the study findings will help brand managers, other marketing practitioners and indeed marketing scholars to develop effective internal brand management strategies with a view to implementing them profitably.
