BYOD Policies – Share your opinion
The folks over at Software Advice have a great survey going on about BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies. Check out the survey and share your opinion.
A Blurb from Software Advice
Many organizations are shifting away from company-issued devices and adopting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies, which allow employees to use the mobile technology they’re most familiar with. There’s a lot of buzz around the benefits of BYOD in an increasingly mobile workforce, but little discussion around the policies needed to establish rules and guidelines for usage.
BYOD policies, of course, have benefits and drawbacks. While the freedom to choose the device and platform you’re most proficient in can boost productivity, supporting multiple platforms can be a burden for IT, and security issues are a significant concern. What difference does it make whether it’s a Dell or Mac when an employee’s laptop is stolen and he hasn’t installed any remote data wiping software? And who’s responsible for replacing that laptop if the employee lost it while travelling for work? As enforcing these policies often falls to HR, shouldn’t we be doing more to determine priorities and establish best practices?
Software Advice is an online resource for comparing and selecting a human resources management system and more–is gathering information on a survey about ”bring your own device” policies at growing businesses, and would like your input! You can take the BYOD survey and find out the results in March.
