    People 4.0: staying ahead to avoid falling behind

    €190.00
    +vat
    HR Management is increasingly aware of the ongoing digital transformation and yet there is a frequent lack of structured strategies to sustain this change, strategies formulated by building on the business plan, in order to develop skills, roles and leadership styles (People Strategy). The road still seems long, and challenging times await HR Management over the next few years: to help people adapt to a professional world which is changing as fast as digital technology itself.

    New Ways of Working: Taking Stock of Smart Working in Europe

    €110.00
    +vat
    Smart Working is a topic of interest not just in Italy, but internationally. Looking beyond Italian borders, we see that the concept is present, albeit with different names, characteristics and levels of maturity in many European countries. Indeed, the European Parliament “supports smart working” (Resolution of 13 September 2016, General Principle no. 48). The most pioneering countries in Europe in the field of Smart Working include Great Britain, the Netherlands and Belgium, with examples of Smart Working initiatives in both the private and public sectors.

    Building an organisation for the future starting from people: the role of the HR Department in digital transformation

    €190.00
    +vat
    Digital transformation is entering into every area of people’s lives, changing how we live, learn, work and interact. It is a proper revolution, where digital innovation is calling the shots, changing the rules of the workplace and provoking an increasingly burning debate about their medium-long term implications for employment. The events taking place can be seen as a perfect storm, a driving force that is compelling organisations to innovate by putting practices and processes into discussion. The function of the HR Director is evolving within this landscape, taking on the increasingly important role of enabling the development and sourcing of key skills for organisations (digital or not) and of guiding the process of change.

    The Italian context appears to be extremely attractive for the Supply Chain Finance market, especially due to the outstanding amount of working capital of Italian companies. However, some elements of investigation are necessary. Who are different actors that are entering this world? Which are their business models? Which are the costs and benefits of SCF solutions? How does a company choose the best solution for their suppliers? Which are the different sources of information that need to be taken into account when implementing a SCF solution?
