Company Image as an Employer on Poland’s Mobile Telecommunication Market and Its Relationship with Consumer Recommendations



Objective: The objective of the article is to answer the research question whether there exists any correlation between the image of a company as an employer and consumers’ recommending its offer.

Research Design & Methods: Survey questionnaire conducted on a group of 896 respondents provided quantitative data analysed with the application of statistical methods.

Findings: The research focused on current and potential customers in the dynamic market of telecommunications services. The analysis demonstrated that respondents who perceive the service provider as a good employer are more willing to recommend its offer.

Implications & Recommendations: While the employer image is believed to be powerful from the human capital perspective, it is also a meaningful intangible factor for offer recommendations.

Contribution & Value Added: This research contributes to both human resources and marketing literature by providing a new perspective on the value of company’s image as an employer.
