Bring your own device policies: IT consumerism risks

Bring your own device (BYOD) is a trend which has taken South Africa by storm. Employees use their own smartphones, laptops and tablets in their daily work activities rather than company-issued devices. This trend is also known as IT consumerisation.

As is the case in any other management function, human resources needs a strong technological foundation underpinning it if it is to be meaningful both in terms of human capital development and labour law compliance. Now, more than ever, employers need to be on their toes as they face increased statutory compliance demands emanating from the recent amendments to statute at NEDLAC.

In the highly competitive environment of human resources, a number of trends will create new and differing business needs. How these needs are proactively applied and satisfied, will determine how successful an organisation will be in the future.
