Taking advantage of a dataset providing O*Net-type information on the task content of Italian occupations, this work analyses empirically if and to what extent employment patterns are affected by task characteristics in terms of “relative routinarity”. The investigation focuses on the 2005-2016 period relying on a panel including all Italian 4-digit occupations.

We study the unions-innovation correlation using micro-data on Italian non-agricultural firm. The key finding of the paper is that unionized firms have a higher and statistically significant probability of filing patents than their non-union competitors in Italy. While corroborating the evidence that unionisation does not – generally speaking – inhibit innovation in Europe (while the opposite hold true in North America), our study is the first to show that such effect is unambiguously positive in the Italian pre-crisis context and also that it is far more significant than in the rest of Europe. The result is at odds with the de-unionisation path which has characterised Italy over the last decades and thus needs to be interpreted in terms of policy suggestions.

Dosi, Giovanni ; Guarascio, Dario ; Ricci, Andrea ; Virgillito, Maria Enrica
What has been the dynamics of productivity in the Italian business firms in the aftermath of the crisis? And what has been the impact of training efforts upon such dynamics? In this work we address these questions exploring a unique Italian microlevel dataset which links information on the amount and the nature of training and the balance-sheet data.
L'orientamento si configura come sistema di servizi olistici ed integrati rivolti alle diverse necessità di orientamento degli individui che ricevono servizi erogati da diverse strutture, le quali si fanno carico delle singole esigenze personali e professionali. Per di più, visto che l'individuo vive lungo il proprio arco di vita diversi passaggi e transizioni, fra formazione e lavoro, l'orientamento acquista una dimensione sempre più ampia.
