MULTINATIONALS AND THEIR STAKEHOLDERS. INSTITUTIONALISATION OF THE DIALOGUE - CASE STUDIES FROM POLAND (Instytucjonalizacja dialogu z interesariuszami. Studia przypadków przedsiebiorstw miedzynarodowych w Polsce)
The paper presents selected cases of multinational enterprises, which are the leaders in stakeholder relations in Poland. The empirical part is preceded by the introduction, which situates the case studies in the theoretical framework of industrial relations. In this area the generalization of evidence from the existing capitalist systems has produced two perspectives. Corporate governance is perceived from shareholder's view as well as from stakeholder's view. The presented results refer to the second of the mentioned models. The empirical part discusses the origins of the practice of incorporating stakeholders' expectations into companies' operations and presents types of stakeholders' participation, as well as the process of dialogue institutionalisation. Finally, recommendations concerning the inner-organizational conditions promoting effective dialogue are formulated.
