Employment, Education, Organizational Development

The research line investigates the role of human resources in modern socio-economic systems, focusing on three mainly integrated perspectives. The first one addresses (local) labour markets, their regulation, the role of industrial relations on competitiveness and employment, as well as emerging organizational models (e.g., smart working) and their effects on productivity and sustainable development, and the gender equality issue. By means of mixed quantitative-qualitative methodologies, the role of education as human capital accumulation is explored in its various dimensions, considering its manifold socio-economic impacts. In particular, higher education is mainly analysed focusing on related careers and territorial/sectorial mobility, while Vocational and Educational Training is analysed as a tool for workers’ placement. Finally, using action-research methodologies, innovative training models are promoted, which aim at both sustainable organizational development and at generating leadership models suited to complex organizations, based on transversal skills for development.
