Emanuele Scorza was having difficulty balancing his life. As the sales manager of a small winery in Italy he found it challenging to take time off. There was simply no one else there with his field of expertise. At the same time, he wanted to spend more time with his kids. Fortunately, the EU-funded project EQuIPE2020 helped his company to examine and reorganise its operations. Emanuele was able to find ways of working flexibly, plan vacation time more easily, and still perform his tasks. As a working parent, Emanuele feels that he has achieved a much better work-life balance – and his kids have noticed that he is now happier.
