Overcoming the Challenges of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

More employers are embracing Bring Your Own Device policies as a way to reduce costs and minimize inconveniences. Employees like the idea because they don’t have to deal with carrying around two devices to keep business and their personal lives separate. And if a company has a partial reimbursement plan for the use of a personal device, everyone wins! But is your company ready to go ahead with a BYOD policy?

Instituting a BYOD policy is more than just telling everyone it’s OK to use their personal devices for work. You need to craft a BYOD policy that is clear and easy to understand. Make your policy with input from the IT department to help address common issues that may come up, create fair guidelines, and lay out how IT handles access to personal phones. You don’t want IT logging into someone’s phone to delete company information and taking some personal data along with it.

One of the potential items that can go into a BYOD policy is the use of two accounts on the same phone: one for work, one for personal information. This allows the employee to keep work and personal accounts separate, and it prevents accidental deletions. Some phones handle dual accounts better than others, however. Phones like the Galaxy S8 Plus from T-Mobile are excellent candidates for the dual account setup. Make sure the BYOD policy covers this possibility. Also, make sure your employees have service from a reliable 4G LTE network like T-Mobile to handle their data needs when working offsite. Read on to the infographic below to learn more about the world of BYOD.
