In today’s fully connected world, the line between personal and work is constantly blurred. Now more than ever, it’s important to reimburse employees for business-related expenses. But how do you solve for this when your employees are using their personal devices to both interact with friends on social media and take business calls or send emails while traveling for work? Enter a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) reimbursement. BYOD programs are a cost-effective alternative to company-owned devices. For employees, it means they get to use a phone they actually like, and they don’t have to carry two devices at all times. Giving a flat mobile stipend to everyone might be the easiest option, but is it the most accurate?
With a variety of plans and devices being used in the mobile-enabled workforce, it doesn’t make sense to pay everyone the same amount. You want fair and accurate phone reimbursements for each employee without the painstaking process of collecting phone bills every month.
