Where to do smart working in Milan (and differences with teleworking)

In the past year and a half, due to the pandemic, most Italians have worked from home. Between lockdowns, contagion management and preventive measures, there are in fact many offices that have remained closed, providing workers with the necessary tools to carry out their job – where possible – remotely.

In particular, according to a research by the Assolombarda Study Center, the data on the diffusion of smart working a Milano during the pandemic they are evocative of how the city has adapted to this new use of work. The health emergency has in fact had a huge impact on the spread of smart working, helping to accelerate changes in the organization of work already underway as a result of technological evolution.

At the end of 2020, the Observatory on smart working of the Politecnico di Milano estimated at over 6.6 million workers in so-called “emergency” smart working in March 2020 (down to 5 million in September, equal to 33.8% of employees) and predicts that in the “new normality “the number will stabilize at 5.3 million.

The difference between smart working (or agile work) and teleworking

An important fact, which makes us reflect on how some ways of working – and, inevitably, also of mobility – are changing in one of the leading cities of the Italian economy. To better understand this phenomenon, however, it is necessary to clarify a crucial point: the difference between smart working and teleworking. These two modes are similar only to the extent that the worker works from home, but in fact they differ on two fundamental aspects of the working dimension: the place of work and the working time.

The telework it can be a standard way of performing the work performance, agreed directly during the recruitment phase, while, in the case of the smart working agreement, the parties can always withdraw and resume work on site. For smart working, O agile work, in fact, we mean a working modality of a subordinate employment relationship in which there is an absence of constraints in terms of time and space.

In this case, moreover, the organization takes place by phases, cycles and objectives, and is established with an agreement between the employee and the employer. The English term “smart”, in fact, it refers to the objective: to improve worker productivity thanks to the reconciliation of life and work times. So then the two cornerstones of this practice are: organizational flexibility and the voluntary nature of the parties who sign the individual agreement.
