36 THOROGOOD PROFESSIONAL INSIGHTS 2 S TA K E H O L D E R S Who is a stakeholder? What exactly does ‘stakeholder’ mean? The word was first recorded in 1708 as ‘a person who holds the stake or stakes in a bet’. Today’s standard dictionary definition is ‘a person with an interest or concern in something’. The term has been popularised by UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair, who first referred to the ‘stakeholder society’ in which every UK citizen has an interest or stake. From the corporate macro viewpoint, a stakeholder or resource-holder is any person or organization with an interest in how well a company performs or who can affect, or is affected by the achievement of a company’s objectives.

Choice and access are now becoming as important as the brands themselves.

At the heart of reputation management must be an ethical commitment by a corporation to seek a better way of conducting business that also takes into account the social and environmental impact of its operations. Outside of the more immediate financial forces that shape reputation, the additional pressures tend to arise from the priorities of NGOs who seek to monitor and influence social and environmental issues. It is important for corporations not to be seen adjusting corporate policy simply to placate outside forces, but to somehow balance their interests, so that financial performance is maximized, but not by ignoring the concerns of stakeholders other than shareholders.
