Enterprises are increasingly considering the use of employee-owned notebooks, and more than 40% of organizations have a policy regarding the use of employee-owned PCs, according to a survey by Gartner, Inc. Companies in the sample expect the average number of workers using employee-owned notebooks as their primary work PC to increase from 10% in 2009 to 14% by mid-2010.

During the past two years, nine out of 10 companies have addressed the issue of employee-owned devices. Nearly half (48%) prohibit their use outright; many others (43%) have specific policies that allow their use.

The Gartner survey found that service companies, such as insurance and telecommunications companies, are more likely to allow employee-owned PCs than organizations in the manufacturing, wholesale or government sectors. There were also differences from a country point of view with 60 percent of the German companies in the sample currently allowing the use of employee-owned PCs versus only 30% of U.S. and U.K. companies.
