Smart working allows you to work from anywhere and fulfil your responsibilities, without having to be physically in an office, measuring productivity by results and not by the number of hours worked.
According to the Smart Working Observatory of the Politecnico di Milano, Smart Working is "a new philosophy of work management based on the restitution of flexibility and autonomy to the employee when choosing spaces, schedules and tools to do their work, in front of a greater responsibility in the results".
Smart working can increase a company’s productivity
by about 15% per worker.
It is important not to confuse smart working with teleworking. The second is a consequence of the first, but it is not the same. This correlation is very common among Spanish companies, and perhaps, this is why only 27% of those companies have flexible work policies or allow teleworking.
Being a smart worker is being able to work from anywhere (home, co-working space, hotel) and fullfil your responsibilities, without having to be physically in an office, measuring productivity by results and not by the number of hours worked. This is achieved through the use of digital tools that allow the worker to have access to their projects, tasks, calendar, etc., as well as collaborate with the rest of their team, while the company has visibility and control over the entire process.
