Almost half of technology executives now allow employees to access the company network using their personal smartphones and other technology tools, according to a survey of Canadian executives carried out by Robert Half Technology. Of the 49 per cent who support this Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend, 44 per cent said their firms offer limited technical support, and 52 per cent offer full support. The remainder offer no support. “Firms are striving to balance employees’ wish to use their preferred devices with the possible security risks and logistical challenges, such as offering support for these non-standard gadgets,” said Lara Dodo, a regional vice-president of Robert Half Technology in Canada.
