Stakeholders

All parties that have an interest, financial or otherwise, in a firm-stockholders, creditors, bondholders, employees, customers, management, the community, and the government.

Stakeholders

All persons and institutions that have an interest in seeing a venture or company succeed. Stakeholders include shareholders, management, employees, the larger community, and even the government. While stakeholders may not have a direct financial holding in the company, they would still stand to benefit if the venture or company succeeds. For example, the local government may wish to see a company succeed because it provides tax revenue, even though the local government does not directly own any part of the company.
