There is also a fuzzy line when it comes to the responsibility of the device – it belongs to the employee, but who is responsible for the repair costs or replacement if it is lost in use for work purposes? If you allow personal use of corporate equipment, you should explain the work-related apps and data that users can access for non-business activities and clarify any restrictions regarding personal apps or files on the device. In addition, if you allow personal calling, texting, printing, and social media use at work, it`s important to clarify the acceptable level of use and abide by any restrictions on appropriate content. Whether you choose a byod or corporate equipment agreement, make sure your policy is well thought out. This ensures that your employees are able to understand what is expected of them, and this, in turn, will make the directive a success.
