BYOD Isn't Slowing Down

In fact, its growth rate is skyrocketing. According to Tech Pro Research, roughly three-fourths of all organizations will have adopted a BYOD policy of some sort by 2017. As online collaboration tools continue to improve, companies won't have to restrict their workforce by geographical location.

On January 29, 2015, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) triggered a transformation in Internet availability by changing the definition of broadband. Beyond making lightning-fast Internet more accessible, this development heralds something even greater for businesses: the death of traditional cubicle culture.

It's no secret that today's workforce demands flexible work-from-home policies. Many fear-driven employers still keep workers caged in a single office building, but with broadband connection speeds more readily available than ever, employee demand will soon reach a breaking point.

As the death of the cubicle approaches, businesses will soon recognize the benefits of the free-range worker. With the latest technology developments, today's workforce can collaborate from anywhere using tools such as videoconferencing and cloud-based phone systems. Companies can broaden their talent pool by hiring the best talent available – not just those within a fixed geographical area. To help businesses prepare for this shift, Daryl Reva, vice president of marketing at the business phone systems provider Fonality, has outlined the benefits of offing the old office culture.
