Corporate Governance and Corporate Identity


  • Eva Parum


The aim of this paper is to discuss and analyse whether recommendations on corporate governance have led to more transparency and well-defined corporate identities for listed small and medium-sized companies through their external communication on corporate governance. The paper focuses on the task and responsibility of the board and discusses the effect of external communication on management, transparency and corporate identity. The paper also analyses results from two empirical studies on communication on corporate governance from 60 Danish listed companies. It can be concluded that communication through corporate governance has led to more transparency in how companies are managed. There is room for improvement, however, before external communication leads to well-defined company identities. Copyright (c) 2006 The Author; Journal compilation (c) 2006 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
