BYOD stands for brings your own device. This is the practice of allowing the employees of your business to use their own computers, smartphones or other devices for work purposes.
Allowing BYOD in the workplace can bring advantages:
– Brings familiarity. Employees will know there way round their own phones which in turn can provide greater efficiency.
– No need for training. If an employee is used to certain devices and your firm uses a different brand or model, they may need to be taught on how to use the equipment, which is time consuming. If they have their own device, they already know how to use it.
– Saves your business money. If your employees prefer BYOD then it saves the need to buy company smartphones and computers.
