BYOD has feel-good effect, survey finds

Organisations that allow employees to use their own computer devices at work are improving their attractiveness to staff and raising morale, according to a survey of 300 small and medium-sized businesses by cloud computing company Nasstar.

The survey suggests, perhaps surprisingly, that 64 per cent of businesses in this sector already do allow staff to use their own devices for work purposes. Moreover, 60 per cent of respondents said they felt they had saved on IT training and hardware by letting staff use their own devices.

Even those who are not allowing this yet seem to think it’s bound to happen eventually. Around 70 per cent felt that with the rise of tablets and smartphones, it was "inevitable" that in the future all staff would demand the flexibility to use their own devices in tandem with those provided by their employer.
