ABSTRACT
Many companies develop specific strategies and charge their employees for their implementation. With regard to multinationals, which now seek to become socially responsible, it seems that "middle managers" have a central role. In this landscape, the approach of Mitchell and al. (1997) is relevant because it reminds us that it is essential for the company to categorize its stakeholders to better manage them. The categorization will enable employees to act in better conditions and achieve better performance. It also allows companies to become a little more responsible since they will be able to meet the broad expectations of stakeholders. This paper proposes, from the work of Mitchell and al. (1997), to discuss the role of middle managers in this act of categorization. Then, it proposes to note that although the company's strategy can vary, the categorization function remains the same. Thus, socially responsible management methods heavily rely on the function of middle management.
