Around 50% of Britons to use their own mobile phones and other devices at work
By 2020, around 50% of British citizens will use their smartphones, tablets or laptops at work on a regular basis. This news is based on a research done lately.
In a survey where 2,000 organizations were involved, the implementation of BYOD programs, which require employees to bring their own phones in the workplaces, is expected to go up by $45. This survey was done by Gartner, which is a technology research organization.
Fully subsidized smartphones and other devices are more likely to turn outdated. According to David Willis, the BYOD program will create mobile workforce, up employee satisfaction, and cut or prevent costs.
On the other hand, many organizations do not have security for British employees who tend to check their work emails on their own smartphones and other devices. As a result, it increases the risk of compromising confidential information.
Mr Willis further says that IT is now officially recognizes the fact that employees tend to use their workplace mobile phones to make personal calls and to do other activities unrelated to the work; therefore, something should be done to make the smartphone more secure.
Companies in the States are more likely to permit BYOD compared to those in Europe, as per the research. On the other hand, employees in Brazil, China, and India tend to use a personal smartphone at work.
