The purpose of this study was to do an empirical study on the service sector to investigate the effect of brand identity on brand performance and employees’ job satisfaction with the intermediating role of organizational confidence, using Buil et al. (2015) model. In this model, the effect of brand identity on brand performance and employees’ job satisfaction is investigated both directly and indirectly through the organizational confidence. A sample of 273 individuals was selected randomly from employees of Pasargad bank branches in Tehran. The data collection instrument was a standard questionnaire with 26 questions whose validity and reliability were confirmed; it was distributed among the statistical population. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. At the level of descriptive statistics, indices such as frequency and frequency percentage were used. The correlation methods, structural equation modeling, and path analysis were used on the level of inferential statistics; LISREL and SPSS software were used for this purpose. The results of the analysis showed the direct and positive impact of brand identity on brand performance, organizational confidence, and job satisfaction. In general, the ability of Pasargad Bank to improve the brand performance, increase the organizational confidence and satisfy its employees, is directly and indirectly related to the brand identity (p <0.05).
