The general objective of the study was to find out how inflation affects the performance of the organization. In order to achieve this objective a study was conducted among the employees of equity bank Kabalagala branch. Information was collected through the answers given to the questionnaires, and through face to face interview. The researcher employed a case study method in compiling data. The population of the research considered managers, staff, and supervisors of Equity Bank. The findings of the study revealed that inflation plays an important role in the performance of the bank. This is because the amount of interest charged is a key factor that a client considers when applying a loan and interest rates do increase when inflation occurs thus affects performance of the banks since clients will intend to borrow during inflation. The major recommendation of the study is that government should apply all methods needed in order to control inflation such as monetary policy, fiscal policy, and price control.
