The system allows people to manage their time independently, working simultaneously on different tasks and for more than one employer, choosing from various opportunities. Through the use of artificial intelligence, the platform also selects the projects most in line with the interests and objectives of the user’s professional growth.

‘In my long experience as a manager and CEO, I have always found that people make the difference. Finding the right balance between procedures, organization and empowerment of people is complicated, but new technologies are opening up opportunities for innovation and development in the organization of work. On this basis, Italian companies, which are second to none in terms of creativity and ingenuity, can build a competitive lever to continue to excel on global markets’, commented Vladimiro Carminati, country Italy director of De’Longhi appliances and private investor in White Libra, about the Digital Work City platform.
