BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device, which means employees are permitted to use their own mobiles, tablets and laptops for work. Sounds great, right? Well, in lots of ways it is.
The most obvious bonus is the dramatic reduction in capital expenditure not to mention the productivity pros. Workers are able to easily communicate with the rest of the team and get their work done without the bother of having to carry multiple devices wherever they go.
As many internal IT departments struggle to keep up with new tech updates, BYOD is a convenient way to keep people working without having to be tied to their desks. With a BYOD ethos, employees spend less time learning how to use a new device, as they are working on devices they are familiar with.
