Today’s workforce demands flexibility. Carrying two phones or wasting time learning how to use a new company-provided device decreases productivity and employee satisfaction. Enter a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) reimbursement. BYOD programs are a cost-effective alternative to company-owned devices that offer employees the flexibility they expect.
