The project focuses on exchange of good practices to support self-employed people’s work-life reconciliation. Some people choose self-employment as it can provide flexibility and a better work-life balance, however, it can also result in unpredictable or irregular working hours, as well as the lack of job security and sufficient access to social protection. These factors can severely impinge on the work-life balance of self-employed workers, particularly self-employed women. Promoting entrepreneurship and self-employment is crucial to achieving smart sustainable growth across Europe. An important contributing factor to achieving this is ensuring that self-employed individuals can reconcile professional and family responsibilities.
