Abstract

Advances in IT, changes in the organizational structures of companies, the growth of the services sector, and new forms of organising work are factors that have contributed to the growth of self-employment. In Spain individual entrepreneurs with no salaried workers account for most of the country’s economic activity. As a result, they can be seen as stakeholder enterprises, in that the entrepreneur has a stake in all the activity flows they undertake. Due to their small size, it is advisable that intercooperación agreements are set up along with networks to help them become competitive. They must also be offered a regulated operational framework with a sufficient number of legal protection mechanisms framed within a future Self-Employment Statute.
