Smart Working is a set of managerial practices created to help businesses and institutions rethink their approach to work, and to encourage them to embrace digital innovations. The idea behind it is to give people autonomy and flexibility in choosing where, when, and how to work, focusing on results and outcomes instead of counting work hours in the office.
In fact, research has shown that people are more productive when they are able to work in a way that suits them best.

Within each of these areas, certain initiatives can be taken, which will improve the work life and the productivity of employees.
