  • Smart Working in the Italian context: a literature review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Maria Laura Frigotto, Simone Gabbriellini, Luca Solari, Alice Tomaselli
      Nello scenario della Quarta Rivoluzione industriale la modalità di organizza-zione ed esecuzione del lavoro acquisisce sempre più rilevanza. Anche in Italia, sia nelle aziende private sia nella Pubblica Amministrazione, si sta diffondendo una forma di organizzazione ed esecuzione del lavoro che prevede maggiore autono-mia nella scelta di tempi, luoghi e modalità: lo Smart Working (SW), regolato, a livello nazionale, da una legge ad hoc (l. 81/2017) nei termini di lavoro agile. Proponiamo qui una rassegna della letteratura sul tema, limitata alla produzione degli studiosi dell’accademia italiana. In generale allo SW viene riconosciuta la capacità di coniugare gli obiettivi dei lavoratori con quelli delle imprese, contri-buendo quindi alla loro competitività e sostenendo le istanze dei nuovi modelli or-ganizzativi emergenti. Lo SW implica anche più formazione e acquisizione di nuo-ve competenze per i lavoratori, così come per gli specialisti HR e i manager chia-mati ad abbandonare la cultura della presenza e del controllo in nome di fiducia e condivisione. Infine, il dibattito è decisamente esteso in ambito giuridico: dalla comparazione tra SW e telelavoro, alla metamorfosi dei poteri datoriali, ai concetti di subordinazione e autonomia, al ruolo della contrattazione collettiva, al diritto alla disconnessione e all’applicazione dello SW nel particolare contesto della pub-blica amministrazione.

  • Behavioral Characteristics of Innovators. Evidence from a Lab Experiment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sara Romanò, Tania Parisi, Giulia Bocca, Davide Barrera, Filippo Barbera
      Innovation has been receiving increasing attention by researchers, businessmen/women and policy makers. Innovators are often considered as individuals endowed with exceptional characteristics who behave radically different from the rest of the population. This assumption has gradually led to a systematic overlap between the logic of innovation and the logic of excellence. Accordingly, in many contexts few selected individuals receive much of the available resources. However, the association between innovativeness and excellence lacks robust empirical support. This study aims to fill this gap by observing whether innovators actually display unique behavioral characteristics. To this end, we carried out a lab experiment to gauge differences in risk aversion, interpersonal trust, altruism, and egalitarianism between individuals with high innovation potential and individual with moderate or limited innovation potential. According to the literature, risk aversion and interpersonal trust are two key characteristics of innovators, whereas the other two dimensions have been generally overlooked. Results show that, except for risk propensity that is just above the threshold of significance, none of the behavioral measures is higher among high-potential innovators. These results are especially surprising as we selected groups maximizing difference in innovation potential, thereby introducing a conservative bias.

  • Time crafting in coworking spaces

      Abstract: Matteo Rinaldini, Anna Chiara Scapolan, Stefano Rodighiero, Fabrizio Montanari
      The paper aims at investigating the forms of time crafting activated by mobile workers in coworking spaces. In doing so the paper draws on and contribute to three different streams of research: literature on social acceleration, studies on job crafting and extant recent research on coworking spaces. Results reported in the paper are based on exploratory qualitative empirical research that involved 126 coworkers of 39 coworking spaces in the Italian Region Emilia-Romagna. Empirical evidence suggests two forms of time crafting that coworkers may adopt to structure and manage their time and the relationship between their work time and non-work time: time boundaries crafting and relational time crafting. The former basically refers to actions aimed at separating or overlapping work time and non-work time by frequenting the coworking space; the latter includes actions aimed at concentrating inside the coworking space all the time devoted to professional relationships as well as at ritualizing extra-work relationships. In both the time crafting forms, the coworking space plays a relevant role providing the workers with physical artifacts, services and intangible resources (basically a sense of community) which support coworkers in their actions aimed at crafting the timing, length and temporal intensity of their work and non-work activities.

  • Organizing In Sound: Sound Art and the Organization of Space1

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Domenico Napolitano, Luigi Maria Sicca
      Starting from the assumption that music and sou"sound art" in the framework of organization studies. The paper takes the steps from the consideration proposed by sound artists and theorists that sound is not only an aesthetic object but a ‘relational medium’, in which and through which social knowledge and organizational dynamics deploy. Since sound is fundamentally inseparable from space, we refer to scholarship on the organization of space and organizational aesthetics in order to show the connection between sensorial, perceptual and socio-material aspects in organizing. We explore this topic through ethnographic study of the sound art festival La Digestion, held in Naples and focused on the relation between sound and space. Adopting a constructionist view of organizing, we show how sound is part of the socio-material action-net from which organizational space performatively emerges. Thus, we argue that the perspective of "organizing in sound" can offer scholars of organization studies a method by which to more accurately study and comprehend various organizational phenomena with multimodal manifestations.

  • Employee voice, human capital and organizational performance: evidence
           from Italian firms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Alessia Gritti, Francesco Fumagalli, Alessandra Lazazzara, Luca Carollo, Edoardo Della Torre
      This study contributes to the organizational literature on employee involve-ment in the decisions that affect their work and the organization they belong to. In particular, the study focuses on the relationship between employee voice mecha-nisms and organizational performance and on how such relationship varies de-pending on the level of organizational human capital. The analysis of 168 Italian companies shows that both employee voice mechanisms and organizational hu-man capital have a positive relationship with firm performance. In addition, the results indicate that the highest organizational performance levels occur in com-panies where high employee voice and high human capital are jointly present. These results thus support the idea that practices directed at enhancing employee involvement and human capital complement each other, leading to superior com-pany performance.

  • Psychological well-being of employees working for business organizations
           with a normative organizational identity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Marco Guerci, Francesca De Battisti, Elena Siletti, Vojkan Nedkowski
      Organizational identity - i.e. the employees’ shared perception about their or-ganization’s central, distinctive, and enduring qualities - has important effects on employee well-being. Specifically, business organizations are characterized by an instrumental organizational identity, which intends organizational effectiveness as shareholders’ value maximization; this identity, in some cases, coexists with a normative organizational identity, which intends organizational effectiveness as stakeholders’ value maximization. The paper, based on a survey on a sample of 185 HR managers and professionals in 8 European countries developed in collab-oration with the leading European HR Professional Association, empirically ana-lyzes the effects of this coexistence on employees’ psychological well-being, focus-ing on emotional exhaustion. The extant literature has explored organizational identity mostly by looking at its association with well-being dimensions different from psychological well-being. Valuing the idea that employee well-being is multi-dimensional construct, our results extend extant literature on the effects of norma-tive organizational identity on employees’ well-being. Specific practical implica-tions of the findings are presented, based on the idea that a normative organiza-tional identity constitutes, within business organizations, not only a resource which have positive effects on certain well-being dimensions such as job satisfaction or engagement (which previous literature has shown), but also new demands which could undermine employee psychological well-being.

  • Universities in transition:female and male department chairs' perception.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Carla Facchini, Magali Fia
      The Italian public higher education system was involved in 2010, with Law No. 240, in a reform process inspired by New Public Management, which intro-duced changes in the governance, i.e., in the decision-making process, at University and Departmental level. The aim of this work is to analyze the Department Chairs’ perceptions on the decision-making process after the reform and on their role. The perceptions of those involved are an excellent indicator of how decision-making processes are made and, in particular, they are better able to account, than the formal written rules, for the power relationships that characterizes governance structures. Besides the new governance, it is also interesting to check whether there are gender differences with regard to the perceptions on governance structures and on Department Chairs’ role depending on whether s/he is a woman or a man. We collect data with a research carried out in 2015 sending a questionnaire to all the Department Chairs of Italian Universities. In general, the decision-making process in the post-reform does not seem to implement a pure model of New Public Man-agement, since verticalization appears contained and checks and balances are consistent. At the same time, the data reveals some interesting (even if limited) gender differences, both in governance structures and in the assessment of De-partment Chairs’ role.

  • How are services organized in the territories' Exploring the dynamics
           of local welfare starting from the Emilia-Romagna experience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Eleonora Costantini, Luca Bonacini
      The aim of this work is to investigate how the local social services system has reacted to the impact of migratory flows in a regional context such as Emilia-Romagna. We describe the main dimensions around which the organizational processes have been articulated in the nine principal Municipalities. In particular, our interest is understanding how the integration between specialist services aimed at foreign citizens and the generalist social services system took place. Following the reorganization of the national welfare, in fact, the ways in which the services are organized at a territorial level are the result of two convergent processes: the integration between the relevant policies for the well-being of citizens and the coordi-nation by the plurality of actors - institutional and non - involved in the govern-ance of these policies. The survey covers the social programming period from 2007 to 2017 and uses a database consisting of semi-structured interviews with municipal officials and administrative documents of planning and financial na-ture. Data are processed through a Cluster Analysis after a Principal Component Analysis.
