According to a new survey from Apple IT management company Jamf, when given the opportunity by their company to chose their own equipment, 75% of those polled chose an iPhone or iPad over Android and other devices. 72% of those polled chose Mac and 28% chose PC.
Overall, 52% of enterprise organizations allow their employees to choose their own computers, and 49% allow them to choose their mobile devices.
Sixty-eight percent of those employees polled said that being able to choose their own preferred computer equipment and mobile devices made them more productive, and 77% even said that being given that choice by their employer made them more likely to stay with that company.
“When it comes to attracting and retaining top talent in the enterprise, the job landscape is more competitive than ever,” said Dean Hager, Jamf CEO. “And, with the highest global talent shortage in 10 years, it’s no wonder that a major priority for enterprise organizations is to create the ultimate employee experience. When employers combine the freedom of technology choice with Apple, the results are stronger employee retention, productivity and job satisfaction.”
The Jamf survey polled 580 executives, managers, and IT professionals from organisations all over the globe.
