The Community: The Community who donate and volunteer for Oxfam are stakeholders; their role is to attend events set up by Oxfam. They have a minimal influence of the organisations aims and objectives. Oxfam has a big impact on the community, the community are interested in Burger King because they provide jobs. So many jobs are provided due to the large amount of branches they own. This affects the local economy because the locals are receiving money from Burger King through the jobs they are doing and are also taxed by the government on the money they are receiving. Burger King effects the population by bringing people to a certain area just to use their restaurants.
Owners: The owners in Tesco, like Oxfam, are the most important and have the biggest stake. They own the entire company, in this case the partnership, and set goals for managers to achieve.
