The empirical foundation for this case is 2 years of fieldwork among vulnerable employees in three business social enterprises in Denmark. A business social enterprise has an emphasis on the inclusion of vulnerable employees, with a significant participatory dimension. In addition, any profit is reinvested in the enterprise for these purposes. The research has provided a framework for understanding how vulnerable employees reflect and navigate their day-to-day experiences, specifically in relation to the local municipality. The case discusses themes of how fieldwork requires being able to improvise and conform to practicalities in the field.
