In order to have more chances in an increasingly competitive world, Italian enterprises must open up to digital transformation and internationalisation, so they must give more space to digital natives and to those with an excellent knowledge of foreign languages. And to create a performing business ecosystem, linearity and meritocracy must become a must that cannot be avoided. It certainly does not help a rigid job market with few opportunities: too many Italians end up doing a job they do not like and for which they are not cut out, with an inevitable fallout in the poor quality of many job performances. This is why in JO Group I consider the selection of human resources and their mental involvement in business dynamics an activity that cannot be delegated to my Collaborators. Doing business in Italy is still too difficult and certainly not a fact to be proud of. The country should ask itself certain questions and change its approach towards too dominant statism, which crushes the enterprises world and is a harbinger of social injustice and patronage.
