Busyness around the Business: A cross-national comparative research of the work-life balance of self-employed workers

Anne Annink

Workers increasingly struggle to combine work and other responsibilities. Self-employment might be a strategy to achieve greater autonomy and work-life balance in comparison to wage employment. However, autonomy does not always offset the responsibilities and uncertainties that come with self-employment.\n\nThis PhD dissertation shows that different types of self-employed have different work-life balance experiences. It explains how these experiences are influenced by work and business characteristics and how they are shaped by the policy, economic and cultural context.\n\nAnne Annink (1987) conducted the present study at the department of Public Administration at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. This study is supported by a research talent grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
