Penningtvätt och anti-korruption: hur hanterar banker kritiserade händelser? : En innehållsanalys av svenska bankers kommunikationshantering vid kritiserade händelser i hållbarhetsrapporter och på sociala medier
Sammanfattning: Aim - The aim of this study is to examine crisis communication strategies in the banking sector on social media and in sustainability reports, linked to money laundering and anti-corruption to prevent damage at their reputation and legitimacy. Background - The growth of internet and its channels for digital communication has globally become an important tool for companies. Through social media companies can communicate with their stakeholders and produce the image of the company that they prefer to show. Social media has thus become an important platform for companies in crisis communication. In a society where stakeholders are increasingly demanding that companies take their responsibility with regard to economic, environmental and social aspects, CSR has become an area of attention. Similarly, the growth of GRI has now forced companies to report on both positive and negative aspects in their sustainability reports. This means that sustainability reports also are an important source for companies to communicate to their stakeholders. Research problem - How do banks etablated on the Swedish market respond to criticized events and how is it communicated in their sustainability reports and social media? Method - The study primarily uses a quantitative approach as the purpose is to investigate which communication strategies are most common. The study also has qualitative elements through interpretation and analysis of banks' sustainability reports and social media. The data collection consists mainly of secondary data in the form of sustainability reports, social media and scientific articles. Conclusion - The results showed a large variation in the number of used communication strategies. There was one strategy used by all banks in both sustainability reports and on social media and these were corrective actions. The empirical data also showed that strategies for evading of responsibility were common strategies in sustainability reports, while strategies for denial were more common in social media. Furthermore, the study showed that image repair theory and signaling theory could be further developed to cover all essential communication strategies.
