The stakeholder approach is an extension of the shareholder value approach, a concept frequently used in business administration. In contrast to the shareholder value principle, which focuses on the needs and expectations of a company’s shareholders, the stakeholder approach attempts to appreciate the company against its overall social background and reconcile the needs of the ­different stakeholders. In addition to shareholders, stakeholders include staff, customers, suppliers, the government, and the public at large.
