    Internal marketing and trust have attracted significant attention in marketing literature over the course of the last two decades. The focus of internal marketing is the management of relationships between employees in order to have motivated and customer conscious personnel (Gronroos 1981). Trust is considered a fundamental ingredient in the development and maintenance of all organisational relationships (Svensson 2001). Therefore, higher levels of trust should enhance the success of internal marketing. The purpose of this paper is to examine trust and internal marketing through a content analysis of research conducted within one case organisation over the past five years. As a result of the analysis preliminary propositions are developed to be tested in an in-depth case study of the organisation.
