Abstract: The objective of this research was to examine the key factors behind the success of an internal communication strategy aimed to improve I-SEC organisational image. Research consisted of literature review on concepts of internal corporate image and the organisational identity formulating the image of employer brand. The major findings proved the poor I-SEC brand image among the workforce as anticipated by I-SEC management and pointed out various drawbacks in organisational culture, structure, communication, and in strategy of I-SEC inaugurating the poor employer image of the company. The research finally suggested an internal communication approach using existing CSR strategy in relation to internal branding and poised some recommendations to increase I-SEC brand awareness, identification and engagement of its employees. This case study recommends that the corporations should give an equal importance to project a good image internally in addition to projection of good reputation to external world.
