Title: Consultants experience of Work-life balance

Subtitle: And how they feel that HR promotes this experience

Authors: Malin Andersson and Matilda Pettersson

Advisor: Jean-Charles Languilaire

Level: Bachelor thesis in Business administration, 15 credits, Spring 2019

Key words: Work-life balance, Ulrich and Brockbank (2005) HR-roles, Zedeck and Mosier (1990) relationship between work and non-work, Greenhaus och Beutell (1985) Work-family conflicts, Consultants.

Purpose: To describe the consultant’s experience of Work-life balance and how they feel that HR promotes this.

Method: In this study we have chosen to start from a deductive approach since there is solid research within the subject of Work-life balance. In order to answer our descriptive purpose, a case study is applied to give us detailed data. The study is of a qualitative nature and we have chosen to collect data via semi-structured interviews with active consultants.

Theoretical framework: The study is based on research within Work-life balance and primarily Greenhaus and Beutell (1985) Work-family conflicts as well as Zedeck and Mosier (1990) relationship between work and non-work. In addition to these theories, our theoretical framework consists of Ulrich and Brockbank (2005) HR roles and research on HR practices.

Empirical framework: The gathering of the empirical data has taken place through seven interviews with active consultants.

Conclusion: Based on the study’s questions, we can conclude that the consultants generally feel that they have a good Work-life balance. We have also identified factors that have a major impact on this experience. We can conclude that consultants find that HR promotes Work-life balance to a great extent. Here too, we have identified important factors for how this experience appears.
