More companies are planning to let employees use their own devices at work in 2013, Computer Weekly/TechTarget’s IT Priorities Europe research reveals. In the UK, some 40% of IT professionals say their companies will allow staff to buy their own mobile phones for work this year and 30% will allow employees to chose their own tablet devices. Around a fifth plan to let employees use their own laptops on the company network.

When it comes to allowing employees access to web services, like Google Docs and Dropbox, companies in the rest of Europe are more proactive than those in the UK. In the rest of Europe, 25% of companies will allow employees to chose their own email service this year compared to just over 10% in the UK. And around 20% of European firms will allow Dropbox for transferring large files, compared to around 16% of UK companies.
