  • A shareholder is someone who holds shares in the company. So the shareholder is an investor.

    European governments and companies are now using the term "stakeholder" to mean anyone at all who is affected by what a company does or in some way sticks his nose into the company's affairs. From what I'm seeing nowadays, this means not only investors, but also workers, government bureaucrats, people who live in the same city as a corporate facility, angry groups of activists, people who "care" about something tangentially related to the company. In other words, the way they use the word, a stakeholder is pretty much anyone who says he's a stakeholder.

Person group or organization that has direct or indirect stake in an organization because it can affect or be affected by the organizations actions, objectives and policies. Key stakeholders in a business organization include creditors, customers, directors, employees, government, owners, suppliers, unions and the community from which the business draws its resources. Although stake-holders are usually self-legitimizing all stakeholders are not equal and different stakeholders are entitled to different considerations. For example a firm’s customer is entitled to fair trading practices but they are not entitled to the same consideration as the firm’s employees.


Conflicts Between Stakeholders

Having identified the main responsibilities the business has to each stakeholder, see if you can work out where conflicts might arise. These conflicts will arise when the interests of one stakeholder group are opposite to that of another stakeholder group.

For example Employers seeking higher wages might conflict with the desire by management to cut costs to boost profit and thus satisfy their own ambitions and meet the needs of the shareholders.
