Organisations that allow their staff to bring their own computer devices to use at work have seen increased output and better workplace efficiency, as well as happier employees.
In turn, these organisations become more attractive employers, fostering better workplace morale, according to a survey of 300 small and midsize businesses by cloud computing company Nasstar plc.
Almost two-thirds (64 percent) of bosses surveyed already allowed their staff to use their own devices for work purposes. The same number said they had written policies in place for staff wishing to use their own devices at work. Fifty-eight percent felt that letting staff use their own devices at work had led to increased output and better workplace efficiency and happier staff.
There are other benefits too. Some 60 percent of bosses felt that they had saved money on IT training and hardware by letting staff use their own devices.
