21/6/19 STAKEHOLDERS and STOCKHOLDERS

In every company there are stakeholders and shareholders.

stockholder or shareholder is someone who has a financial share in the company. A shareholder is someone who owns stocks in a company. This means shareholders are somehow part owners of the company. They will be able to earn profits if the company will grow, develop, and earn more through the company’s production.

stakeholder, on the other hand, is someone who has an interest in the company; this may be a financial interest or another kind of interest. Examples of stakeholders are employees and staff. Shareholders can also be stakeholders because they have interest in the company in the financial aspect.
