This paper investigates the structure of inter-firm worker mobility in Veneto, an industrial region of Northern Italy by using complex network analysis applied to linked employer–employee data. The empirical network reveals a small-world pattern based critically on a small number of hub firms that keep the labour market integrated. This article discusses the immediate policy implications of these findings as well as the potential of the methodology as a monitoring tool to guide industrial policies aimed at safeguarding and promoting labour reallocation mechanisms
