A new way of working

The transformation affecting corporate organisations and production modes is paving the way for new operational models yet to be fully understood

 

A new hybrid balance between home and office, possibly resting on terms considered “naturally” better and more useful to any situation, from the most traditional to the newest one, extensively experienced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic – this is one of the most effective and, above all, positive accounts describing what has been happening within a large part of the production system in Italy (and elsewhere). And it is precisely such a theme that Francesca Manili Pessina and Francesco Rotondi discuss in Il lavoro ibrido (Hybrid working), a recently published book that deals, in an unusual yet very readable style, with the issues concerning the way in which working modes have changed after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Written like a story, but with the reliability of an accurate essay, this book fully draws on the two authors’ experience: Francesca Manili Pessina has been the Executive Vice President Human Resources, Organisation & Facility Management at Sky Italia since 2013, while Francesco Rotondi is Founding Member and Managing Partner LabLaw at the Studio Legale Rotondi & Partners law firm, as well as an employment solicitor holding a professorship at the LIUC – Università Carlo Cattaneo of Castellanza. Both Manili Pessina and Rotondi examine the much-talked-about “new normal”, whose meaning is encapsulated in the notion of “hybrid working”.

An occurrence, it should be emphasised, which the authors attribute to the natural evolution of working conditions, and then subsequently accentuated by the pandemic. In other words, they explain, the exceptional circumstances brought on by the pandemic have accelerated the pace of several different underlying trends that where already there.
An important aspect highlighted by the two authors is that this new hybrid condition will have a significant impact on customs and practices, organisational models, relationships, leadership, social processes, and so on.

The book, just under 100 pages long, can be easily read in one sitting and begins by exploring in depth the social dimension of smart working in connection to the human relationships existing within a company, before moving on to analyse hybrid working, understood as the result of conciliating virtual and in-person work. The book then goes on to tackle some more specific elements of this novel way to organise work, such as its spaces, the nature and role of leadership, the necessarily new mindset it requires, and its contractual and international aspects.

The book’s conclusion about the impact of COVID-19 is stated in its very first pages: “At the end of this extraordinary and episodic phase, which has accelerated the pace of things in general, we are nonetheless still only attempting to understand what this pandemic will really leave behind.” This work by Francesca Manili Pessina and Francesco Rotondi definitely makes for compelling reading.
