Italy – Labour market reform has little impact

22 July 2013

A year has almost passed since the Italian labour market reform was signed by former Welfare Minister Elsa Fornero but according to the second survey carried out by the GI Group Academy’s Osservatorio initiative, the reform has resulted in very little change. 

The Osservatorio was set up by GI Group in order to promote and support the development and diffusion of the culture of work, and found that;

A high proportion of companies surveyed found that the labour reform has brought no change in effectiveness nor from the point of view of efficiency. 

There is no observed obvious variations to the type of contracts companies have used nor in the termination of contracts, nor social welfare. 

Only 23.4% of companies, as a result of the reform, claim to have accomplished the transformation of a temporary contract to that of a permanent one.

56.4% of companies declared that they have managed at least one hire in the first half of 2013, however, this percentage is lower by 4.9% compared to that recorded in the same period of 2012 (56.4% vs. 61.3%)
