The societal impact of German Mittelstand: Conceptual considerations

This study conceptually explores the societal impact of Mittelstand companies. It aims to analyse the societal role of the German Mittelstand beyond measurable effects (CSR, CC) and to develop a basis for subsequent empirical studies. The societal contribution is understood as added societal value of the economic activity. Societal expectations and political objectives form the framework for the societal added value of enterprises. Due to their specific gover-nance structure, objectives and regional embeddedness as well as their behaviour in times of crises, Mittelstand companies have a special role to play.
