Managing Change in the Mobile Workplace: BYOD Policies and Beyond

January 31

Create an effective social media and BYOD policy for your workplace.

According to one study, nearly 90% of all U.S. employers rely upon their employees to use their own personal electronic devices for work. While there is a distinct advantage of allowing employees the freedom to have workplace mobility in terms of production and responsiveness to customers, there are also a number of challenges for companies in implementing and monitoring this. And, while most employers know they have (or need) both a social media policy as well as an electronic device policy (or BYOD), employers face difficult challenges with these policies both from an enforcement perspective as well as intense scrutiny by governmental agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor. Because workplace mobility and the BYOD is not going away, this topic will discuss the trends on the use of personal electronic devices for workplace mobility and potential issues facing employers, including potential loss of confidential, trade secret business information, non-competition and non-solicitation challenges, and how to handle a departing employee. This material will outline how to create effective social media and BYOD policies (and agreements) and how to enforce those policies without creating litigation or agency charges.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe the trends and statistics in workplace mobility.
  • You will be able to discuss the potential issues and challenges with workplace mobility.
  • You will be able to identify best practices for companies in protecting their information with BYOD policies and practices.
  • You will be able to recognize potential threats to an employer’s confidential information, trade secrets and client relationships as a result of employees’ use of personal electronic devices for work.
