Fostering a Culture of Enterprise Mobility

The rise of the mobile employee along with the expansion of the bring your own device (BYOD) movement is creating vast opportunities for companies to increase the productivity of their workforce by providing employees with enterprise mobile apps that can help them do their jobs faster and more effectively, regardless of their location. In fact, studies have shown that organizations that are embracing teleworking and enterprise mobility are seeing impressive gains in productivity and collaboration among employees. For instance, according to a report by Telework Exchange, a public/private partnership focused on telework and mobility opportunities in the Federal community, a survey of 300  Federal employees finds that 95% believe that the use of mobile devices has vastly improved their work performance. Other findings from the study include:
  • 76% believe the use of mobile devices have increased their productivity on the job.
  • 61% say mobility solutions helped increase the level of communication with coworkers.
  • 47% believe that the use of mobile devices helped increase collaboration between coworkers.
While it’s true that the use of mobile devices and enterprise apps can enable employees to increase their productivity -- an essential building block to fostering enterprise mobility is providing employees with the right types of apps that are easy to download and use. Mobile application management (MAM) makes it easy for companies to make mobile apps available to employees through an enterprise app store while also providing IT with the ability to manage, monitor, and secure enterprise apps and data. To help drive adoption of mobile apps among different employee workgroups, it’s important to instill a culture of mobility that starts at the top and is infused throughout the enterprise. Senior management can help drive adoption by sharing stories about their own uses of mobile apps and how it helps them to do their jobs more effectively whether they’re in the office, on the road visiting with clients, or simply off site. Pilot projects are also a great way to demonstrate success and build momentum behind the use of enterprise mobile apps. For instance, a work group or department that tests out the use of a mobile video conferencing app for use on smartphones, laptops, or tablets can communicate the travel cost savings and productivity benefits to other parts of the enterprise. These types of success stories can pick up interest and spread across the organization.
