A recent article in the Wall Street Journal regarding technology allowances for employees quoted one of our employees about his and how he spends it.
The article talks about some security concerns but overall, employees and employers find it positive:
“Corporate technology managers usually pick laptops, software and other technology for employees. Now some tech managers are finding workers can do a better job when they choose and buy the equipment themselves.”
Here at Airfoil, we believe in encouraging employees to try new and emerging technologies. Providing a technology allowance is just one more way of giving individuals the freedom to make decisions based on personal choices.
My technology allowance contributes a portion to a variety of gadgets: my Zune, my SmartPhone and Sirius Radio. How do you use yours?
