If your employees want to use iPhones and Macs, you really should let them. That’s the main message today coming from a Vanson Bourne survey commissioned by Jamf.
Employee choice remains an HR issue
The international survey asked 2,000 employees and 500 IT decision-makers how they felt about employee choice and the future of work. It found that as many as nine in 10 employees (89%) would take a pay cut to use their choice of device – and suggests that for many, the desire to have that choice may prompt them to seek work elsewhere.
Staff retention post-pandemic is critical. Microsoft recently warned that more than 40% of employees are considering leaving their jobs. In this context, anything that makes it easier to recruit or keep good people should be a key consideration. The Vanson Bourne data suggests choice schemes may help.
