Employees are simply more comfortable using a personal device than something issued by the company. Individuals are more likely to upgrade phones consistently than companies are, so often the company benefits by getting the latest technology to work for them. In addition, employees that are using their personal devices for personal reasons during non-work hours are more likely to be drawn into completing work tasks while technically off-duty – whether that be proofreading a document, responding to e-mails or working on a future presentation or project in their spare time. The greatest benefit is to employee satisfaction, though. Any individual is going to be happier with a device that they chose and have grown comfortable using daily than something that is assigned to them in which they had no say. The biggest drawback is in procuring technology that connects to a number of device types, whether Android, Windows or iOS operated.
