Does BYOD Make Employees More Productive? Maybe

Posted on Tue, Jul 08, 2014

Are employees more productive using their own smartphone or tablet as part of a BYOD program? That’s long been a tricky question for CIOs, but CIO.com staff writer Tom Kaneshige answered the question in an article published over the weekend.

Quoting from a survey by BMC Software, Kaneshige says that the average BYOD-carrying employee works an extra two hours and sends 20 more emails every day.
