Company Policies

Tip 2: Implement company policies from day one, and promote them internally.

Once a company has identified how wearables can be used within the enterprise, it must then outline the policies and regulations (if needed) surrounding their use to ensure company data and content remains protected. Examining mobility policies like BYOD and COPE are vital, as these will help determine what devices are used, who has access to data, and what can be shared. After a policy or policies are put into place, companies then need to promote them internally to all employees to ensure everyone is on the same page.

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.

In this slideshow, MOBI, a leading provider of enterprise mobility services, provides five tips to help companies successfully incorporate wearables into the workplace.
