When it comes to fashion, Italians love to look smart. But it’s only in the last few years that Italians have begun to work smart. Increasingly, smart working has gained favour in many Italian companies, especially ICT firms with international connections.
Smart working offers greater flexibility in terms of working hours and location. It makes increased use of ICT tools and does away with the need for a fixed workstation, regardless of whether one is at the company or elsewhere. It should not be confused with teleworking, where an employee works from home using ICT tools supplied by the company that allow the employee to remain in contact following set working schedules and established procedures.
Employees like smart working as they can balance personal/family needs and work more easily. Companies favour it as they reap the benefits of happier employees and can cut certain fixed costs incurred for having an employee permanently on site.
