We are in an era in which we have the technology to work anywhere, whether our work tool is a PC or a tablet or other similar device. At the same time it is also the era of the return to the land, to nature and to a more genuine lifestyle.
There is a growing desire to experiment with innovative ideas that reconcile the need for a fast and stable connection with that of exploring a natural territory, “on a human scale”, it was said not so long ago. This is how new trends and impulses arise both for innovative entrepreneurial forms and for alternative forms of life, work and citizenship. After some analysis, we decided to develop an idea and work on a project, in the wake of some of these trends. A work in progress that is expressed by proposing a simple but never predictable idea, with the resources we have to be able to do it and in the meantime we continue studying for a more demanding project.
We made our own the concept of “Slow-Working”, which represents the synthesis of a rural stay experience with the need to keep a smart working process active, but then we went further. Our idea, our stay proposal starts by default with the possibility of working in smart working during a stay in our structure, in an available study corner or outside, wherever you want to be, listening to the birds singing and the countryside life. The innovation of our idea concerns many aspects. Some are still to be developed, others are immediately available. Among the latter, we offer the possibility for those accompanying the smart worker to be able to devote themselves to other activities such as crafts, walking, reading. The smart worker himself can delay work times with moments of leisure, relaxation or activities outside the structure, for example with our e-bikes. By agreeing on a number of details in advance, we can offer a personalized stay that meets the needs of our guests and allows them to maximize the benefits. We also cultivate a local network with companies and other companies for which it is possible to plan and implement a stay that includes visits to companies of typical local products, dinners in a farmhouse, pizzeria or other local in the area, but also mini-tours in the countryside in collaboration. with small local farms, tastings or visits to buy native products. Outdoor experiences such as canoe trips or mountain excursions, visits to historic villages.
This type of stay offer can be defined as “holiday working”. The development of this proposal, which in fact is already available in other structures in Italy and in Europe, can in turn be enriched by other initiatives, aimed at maximizing on the one hand the professional results and on the other the psychological and physical well-being. of the smart worker. We are working on these and other aspects to define possible strategies and practical methods of intervention.
