Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of the study was to answer the question: “What are the most common factors
influencing effectiveness of internal communications faced by Polish organizations?” This article
discusses the role of internal communications practices leading to enhancement of organizational
performance. In particular, it concentrates on factors impeding the flow of information inside the
organization. Later on, the article presents empirical findings.

Methodology: Contemporary public relations, internal communications and employee communications
texts have been reviewed to identify how internal communications is defined in literature
and how it influences organization success. Relevant existing research was reviewed and primary
research was conducted. The latter consisted of 29 in-depth interviews with employees from various
Polish organizations.

Results/findings: The article presents interesting results that can be especially useful for internal
communications specialists and managers. It is recommended that to gain a fuller picture of the
issues underlying the findings, quantitative research with relevant employees should be undertaken.
