Keywords:Internal communication, Trust, Organizational identification, Organizational performance, Communication, Organizational communication
The aim of study was to develop a model to identify the influence of communication, organizational identification and trust on the organizations’ performance and proposition of model. The research was descriptive and quantitative, and it was conducted in a soft drink Industry, in Brazil. Hypotheses (n=9) were raised and was applied a questionnaire for 310 employees, considering the constructs: Internal Communication, Trust in the Co-workers, Trust in the Manager, Organizational Identity and Performance. The results showed that the hypotheses H1, H3 and H7 were confirmed. The higher the organizational identification, the greater will be the trust in the manager and the performance. In H4, the study confirmed that there is a lower influence of the Internal Communication on Performance. Thus, the Internal Communication does not support the Performance. Although the direct effect on Performance is contrary (-0.139), the indirect effect was positive (0.476), generating a total effect of 0.337.
