Overview

Engagement offers organisations an ethical mechanism to respond to organisational-stakeholder power imbalances and enhance corporate governance in the interests of wider society. Stakeholder demands for authentic engagement may address stakeholder-held views of perceived organisation-stakeholder power deficits. Challenges exist, however, for corporate managers to provide relevant information and become responsive to the diverse stakeholder interests (Johnston, 2016). This study seeks to understand, document and theorise the characteristics of 'successful' engagement.

Required skills and experience
