As businesses continue to move at the speed of light in every possible direction, employees must be able to keep up with the expectations presented to them. As such, in an attempt to be more lean in their operational efficiencies, many companies are opting to allow employees (from new hires to executives) more flexibility with the types of devices they use in the office.
