    Abstract [en]

    Background: In recent years, sickness absence has increased in Sweden. Something that also has become noted is how the individual manages to combine their living and working conditions. Living conditions includes everthing that happens outside paid work. Partner, children and the private economy are factors that also are included in the individuals living conditions. With working conditions means everthing that happens at work, but also events related to work. Sickness absence can be seen as a consequence of the fact that the individual is not able to balance their living and working conditions, which in turn may have an impact on the organisation. On this basis this study’s problem area was developed from a perspective that combines sickness absence and the experience of balance, between the two main areas that the individual constantly orients between.

    Purpose: The aim of this study is to examine which factors in the lifesituation that is recurring among employees who are experiencing similar degrees of balance between living and working conditons.

    Method: The methodology used in this study was a questionnaire, which was analyzed with help of an understanding interpretation. The method was choosen because of the sensitive nature of this subject, but also to keep the respondents anonymous. As mentioned, the subject of sickness absence is interesting to examine in relation to the subject of balance. Therefore the selection of respondents was based on their history of sickness absence, and formed two respondents groups: sickness absence and healthy attendence. This to investigate differences and similarities between the two groups.

    Findings: The theories of work-life balance and work-life conflict, which is about how balance and conflicts occurs between individuals living and working conditions, were used to make an understanding interpretation of respondents’ surveys. The study showed no distinctive differences regarding the experience of balance, between the respondents groups.
