This is based on two theoretical concepts: social capital and trust. The essay focuses primarily on the social capital but will also affect trust in social relations. In the essay analysis questions is answered about how entrepreneurs and employees' social capital manifests itself and how trust in social relations is expressed in each working group. The general results of the essay are the following: Social capital for employees and contractors manifests itself in different ways, even if they have not proven to be any different in how much support they have from colleagues or other related parties. It has also been shown that contractors and employees utilize their social capital in various ways. Those surveyed employees and entrepreneurs trust towards social relations have also shown differ. This has been reflected in how they perceive hierarchical systems in the workplace, in the great extent they can be themselves and trust their colleagues.
