Insights into research: Communication by the Supervisory Board

Sandra Tietz, Universität Leipzig

Since 2017, the German Corporate Governance Code has included the suggestion that the Chairman of the Supervisory Board should be adequately prepared to hold talks with investors on supervisory board-specific topics. At the same time, the media coverage reveals a high and growing interest in supervisory board matters as well as in the persons acting.

This results in important questions: How can communication for or with the Supervisory Board look like from the companies’ perspective? What role do investor relations and corporate communications play in dialogue with investors and the media? Sandra Tietz gave an insight into the current research on the communication of the Supervisory Board.
