Consequently, in order to be successful, any decided strategic direction must rely first and foremost on the alignment of its employees with mission and overall corporate objectives: ultimately with its business model. This focus on internal clients, is what mainly makes possible the delivering of the promise of value offered by organizations and influences the management of human capital. It has been empirically analyzed how IMO contributes to improve job satisfaction and employees' commitment.
