The provision of occupational welfare (OW) measures within Italian manufacturing and services enterprises is firstly analysed through a descriptive analysis aimed at studying the statistical association between the introduction of OW measures and the enterprise’s employment trends. A further multinomial logistic model is aimed at verifying the role of main business characteristics and strategies on the enterprise’s propensity to adopt alternative OW forms. Findings show a dualisation of the supply of OW schemes among Italian enterprises by size and area, and greater propensity to provide multiple OW measures when the enterprise’s economic performance and size increase, and also the proxy on the importance attributed by the enterprise to the strengthening of collective bargaining seems to be relevant.
