It all has started with Bring Your Own Device in order to work mainly with iPads. This has benefits for the company as the employees pay for their office tool and the company doesn’t need to invest. Still this BYOD has some security issues for the company.
Wondering if this ‘Bring Your Own’ could turn into an evolution for the employees:
BYOD – Bring Your Own Device
Your iPad, netbook, smart phone, … for using during work in order to work.
BYOO – Bring Your Own Office
Your own chair, desk, drawer, … to work at as you already have brought the computer and the telephone.
BYOW – Bring Your Own Work
Instead of your employer giving you work, you have to sell in order to have work – like most consultants and partners have been doing since many years.
BYOM – Bring Your Own Money
Just like partners of companies and associations you could be asked to fund the company in order to get or keep you employed. You fund in order to be able to use their brand name. To work under their umbrella. Similar to a franchise.
BYOS – Bring Your Own Social security
You pay your social security instead of the employer just like independent consultant, contractors already do. As you already sell and fund then you should pay also the social security instead of the company.
BYOR – Bring Your Own Retirement fund
That’s just one step beyond as the company nor the government will have a pension fund for you in the future. Hence you have to pay all social security and medical insurance yourself.
Will the future be like this ?
