    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.

    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?

    New ways of working: a snapshot of Smart Working

    €110.00
    +vat
    Smart working is permeating through Italy, especially in large companies, 48% of which state that they have already introduced this practice, or expect to do soon in the short term. The policy is much rarer among SMEs, exercised in only 5% of these smaller companies. Local public authorities and central government are driving its introduction. The danger, however, is that smart working is brought in only because it is a hot topic, with the result that the implementation is superficial and nothing like the true concept.
