Companies not communicating BYOD policies to employees

GLOBO ( --- which specializes in mobile, telecom and e-business software products and services -- has released survey results that found IT departments are not making employees aware of their BYOD [bring your own device] policies.

In the survey, 68% of respondents said they use their personal devices for work, while only 29% said that their company actually has a BYOD policy in place. Furthermore, 42% of respondents don't know if their company's BYOD policy allows IT to have full access to their personal devices.

These findings show a significant lack of communication between companies and their employees with respect to BYOD, an issue that must be addressed. Other key findings include:
° Fourteen percent reported that they don't know if their company currently has a BYOD policy.

° Ninety-one percent responded that they don't know if their company plans to implement a BYOD policy.

° If IT clearly stated that they have access to their employee's personal information such as emails and contacts, 93% of respondents said that they wouldn't participate in a BYOD program.

° Sixty-nine percent said that they wouldn't consider breaking a company policy in regards to BYOD even if they knew that they would not get caught.

° People using a personal device for work say that they are using it first and foremost to check emails (62%).

"With the significant number of employees already using their personal devices for work, companies should be focused on creating a BYOD program and policies that fit the specific needs of the company," says Aggelos Grypaios, vice president of Business Development and Marketing for Globo. "The next important step is to communicate the policy to employees and make sure that they understand their rights and the rights of the company. Defining and managing a BYOD strategy that protects the security of the employee and the employer will keep companies competitive in the market by creating a mobile workforce."
