Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) is a policy that lives up to its namesake by allowing workers to bring their own devices to work.
It's estimated that nearly 3 out of 4 companies in the United States have implemented a BYOD policy, according to a study conducted by Tech Pro Research. Of course, there's a good reason for this trend: BYOD offers several key benefits, some of which we're going to discuss.
For starters, it's cheaper and most cost-effective to allow workers to bring their own devices as opposed to providing them with devices. Whether it's a tablet, laptop or even smartphone, the cost for such devices can quickly add up when the employer must buy one for each of his or her employees. If workers are allowed to bring their own devices from home, however, it cuts down on these costs.
In addition to the cost-savings benefits, BYOD policies may also increase worker productivity. This is because workers are typically more familiar with their own devices as opposed to new devices introduced or otherwise provided to them by their employer. And when workers are able to produce more work in less time, the company benefits as a whole.These are just a few of the many reasons why so many companies are implementing BYOD policies.
