    +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.

    Smart Working: below the tip of the iceberg

    FREE
    Smart Working became a reality in Italy in 2017. The Italian law on smart working (known as the “Legge Agile”) was approved, debate is raging on the topic and trials are continuing in large companies. While 36% of these have launched formal projects, there are very few cases where these initiatives have led to a general overhaul of how work is organised. Interest among SMEs is growing, but here the initiatives are mainly of an informal kind. Among public authorities, only 5% have activated formal projects, while smart working is practiced informally in another 4%. Despite this limited application, there is considerable excitement around the topic, with interest expressed in 48% of them. Across the country, many more employees can make autonomous decisions about their working life, in terms of place, working hours and tools. There are now 305,000 smart workers.

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?
