Many studies have established that listed family firms differ from both,
their non-family counterparts as well as from private family firms.
However, there is a lack of research that provides a comprehensive
picture on how and what kinds of family-related factors affect
stakeholder orientations and relations in listed family companies. In
order to capture the impact of family ownership, control, and management
in this context, we engage a qualitative inductive study and give voice
to representatives of 16 Finnish listed family firms of varying size
and industry. Our study contributes to the still nascent literature on
listed family firm stakeholder orientations and relations and provides
academics and practitioners with evidence to understand critical factors
affecting listed family firm decision-making and behavior. Implications
for future research and practice are also discussed.
