Multiple regression analyses were conducted to examine the postulated hypothesis and test the direct and mediated relationships among variables. From the study finding, the Pearson correlation coefficient of internal marketing variables shows that there is a positive correlation between Internal marketing variables, job satisfaction, organizational commitment and employees’ customer orientation. In addition to correlation analysis, regression analyses were conducted to examine the direct effect of internal marketing on employees’ customer orientation and the mediation role of job satisfaction and organizational commitment on the relationship between internal marketing and customer orientation. The results indicate that from the selected dimensions of internal marketing Motivation and Communication has significant effect on employees’ customer orientation. However Training and development has a non-significant effect on employees’ customer orientation.
