Reward or Punish? Motivating Employee Compliance with BYOD

The prospect of implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy has many businesses either eager to get started if they haven’t already, or fearful of the negative consequences that might arise. In theory, BYOD can lead to many desired benefits, like improved proficiency, more satisfied employees, and lower costs.

Emerging technology Twitter chat talks up Big Data, analytics
