Realistic Use Cases

Tip 1: Be realistic about the use case of wearables within the enterprise.

When considering implementing wearables into workplace functions and activities, companies should first take a realistic look at who will need these devices to contribute more to the organization, and how they will be used. For example, wearables can be used in human resources as part of employee on-boarding, helping provide real-time feedback, and in procedural updates. And items like smartwatches or FitBits can be utilized to create health care benefit programs. When these use cases are identified and vetted, companies can then start looking into what departments will have access and those that may not require wearables to be successful.

With the steady increase of wearables being used within the workplace, organizations need to understand how these devices will fit in as a part of wider corporate and mobile strategies, BYOD policies, and how they can be most effectively utilized to increase productivity.

While there are clear benefits to introducing wearables into enterprise functions – such as in training/on-boarding procedures or implementing health care rewards plans – wearables can also come with issues concerning employee privacy and maintaining company data security.
