BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is infiltrating workplaces. Most employees love it, however some managers don’t. They think: how am I supposed to create company culture when everyone is on their own device? There’s a loss of uniform flow from the top. User’s are going to consume wearable tech in their private lives and expect it on the job. Wearables are transitioning into the space where soon, devices will be part of making the workday more efficient. Google Glass isn’t at an advanced enough stage to help your company run smoother, yet. However, Smartphone technology has advanced so rapidly, it will only be a year or two before we start seeing Glasses used as a tool to drive the workplace.
The biggest concern surrounding BYOD is some IT professionals feel it can create a potential security breach. Don’t operate from a place of fear, but collaboration. If you see an employee with wearable tech, it could be the future of growing your profit margins. Engage co-workers and employees about their devices. Find out why they like using them. Ask them where they see the technology taking us. You’d be delighted by the responses you get and how passionate people are about their tech!
Here are the wearables that can help you be a better manager, employee, friend and co-worker:
