The chapter focuses on “smart working”, also known as “agile work” - that is, work based on the extensive use of digital devices and increasing spatial and temporal “disembedding” from the formal organization. The chapter firstly examines the spread of the phenomenon at the international and national levels. Through a meta-analysis of existing qualitative and quantitative research, it then addresses the following research questions: - Organizational autonomy, discretion, and control in the regulation of work. - The relationship between digitalization, employment, individual and organizational productivity. - The reconciliation of work with extra-work life. A complex picture emerges, including both opportunities and risks with respect to the development and circulation of new competences, work-life balance, as well as good practices of organizing work and productivity.

Abstract

The chapter focuses on “smart working”, also known as “agile work” - that is, work based on the extensive use of digital devices and increasing spatial and temporal “disembedding” from the formal organization. The chapter firstly examines the spread of the phenomenon at the international and national levels. Through a meta-analysis of existing qualitative and quantitative research, it then addresses the following research questions: - Organizational autonomy, discretion, and control in the regulation of work. - The relationship between digitalization, employment, individual and organizational productivity. - The reconciliation of work with extra-work life. A complex picture emerges, including both opportunities and risks with respect to the development and circulation of new competences, work-life balance, as well as good practices of organizing work and productivity.
