The aim of this chapter is to understand the importance and reality of work-life integration among Dutch consultants, and the associations of work-life integration with personal and situational factors by addressing two research questions:

1) Is work-life integration an issue for Dutch consultants, and – if so – which bottlenecks do they perceive and why do(n’t) they use work-life policies?

2) Are personal and situational factors related to consultants’ absenteeism via their work-life integration?
