BYOD presents a great opportunity for businesses, because by allowing it they're visibly demonstrating a level of trust in their employees that can elevate the workplace relationship to a whole new level, giving them the freedom to operate more effectively.
And allowing more of the real 'them' into the working environment can have a very positive effect on productivity and on morale, particularly if you are instilling a sense of work being what you do rather than where you go.
The upshot is that the employee has access to their work at all times, which can be useful for both employer and employee in terms of flexible working, and it nods to the fact that your device is an enabler rather than a product in its own right. Like electricity - what we want is light, the electricity just allows that.
BYOD gives those organisations focused on improving productivity, employee satisfaction and driving revenue, the platform to do so.
