Smart Working: new frontiers in intelligent working and online teaching
Working from home, adopting schedules and methods that encourage maximum performance and increased comfort, is spreading in the Covid era. If it was little used and its potential was not fully exploited before the pandemic, today, with the spread of the virus, it seems to be the best choice for many Italian workers.
According to research by the giant Randstad, in fact, one-third (about 6.4 million) of Italians could perform their work entirely away from the office, maintaining high control of their responsibilities and carrying out fully the duties assigned to them. For these workers, Smart Working is a
confirmation and a new possible horizon to be charted post-Covid, to be taken into consideration when talking about the work of the future.
To these Smart-mode digital workers add 1.6 million hybrid workers, who can use the Smart formula for more than half of the tasks to be performed.
These figures could be integrated into flexible work in a logic of virtuous alternation after the coronavirus emergency too, but this seems to be a given already.
Distance teaching: just as everything becomes more difficult because they are not physically present, technology comes to the aid of thousands of students, who, eager to return to class, have been able to continue lessons thanks to technological devices.
But how did the country measure up at its appointment with history? Unprepared, answers Randstad’s research: an approach of poor preparation has prevailed both in the management of devices and in the knowledge of the many potentialities of the tools used.
A widespread delay that cannot be generalized though, if it is true that some avant-garde realities have managed to brilliantly pass the test of smart working. And of distance learning.
