How are you handling BYOD reimbursements at your organization? I'm looking to benchmark our reimbursement vs other companies. We are at $75 per month and considering going to $40 per month - how does this compare to your organization's policy?

In my current company we either pay outright for their plan and only let them choose certain plans or we provide them with a company funded device. The cost ends up being about the same and ranges between $50 and $100/mo depending on if you have an international package or not.

0 eur in general , BYOD = (manhour×(cost of device/6000))×koef. Effectivity-(job positio investment/2400)

It depends on their job level but we currently reimburse from $35 to $75.

We don't reimburse. We're a small company and allowing people to complete work remotely using their phone / other devices is more of a benefit vs an expectation. Plus, simply don't have the budget. In a prior life, we set the payout at $50.

We reimburse either $50/mo or $75/mo depending on if you are a remote employee and how much you travel for work based on role and it's automatic in the paycheck tax free no reciepts or tracking needed

Our company does not allowed (or at least discourage or not promoting) BYOD. But If the individual position needs the mobile devices, company pays for it with MDM.

If you are talking about the service (not the hardware) we reimburse “up to” $125/mo. Most folks have plans that are well below this amount.

Technology has become so cost effective that, given your reimbursement is monthly, $40 seems quite reasonable. Ultimately, this is about convenience to the end user. I do not know much about your workforce but what you can do is allow people with financial hardship inform you somehow and then you can either choose to adjust the amount. I am NOT a fan of giving more money to more senior people who make more money to begin with. Better to have the same stipend across than to make it dependent on seniority or tenure. Alternatively, you do it the other way: offer a stipend to Directors and below... :) my .02 cents

$75/month for BYOD as an expense reimbursement when request and approved (only for employees whose jobs require them to have access to technology 24x7). As part of a recent merger, those eligible employees received the same rate, but as a stipend. We are considering eliminating the reimbursement for all new employees and converting the reimbursement for legacy employees and moving to a stipend. We have not ruled out reducing or eliminating the stipend in the future as mobile technology is deemed to be truly ubiquitous.

Is the reimbursement for the capital expenses only? Do you factor in the additional framework/overhead that's required to support a BYOD?

Christopher Thomas

Christopher Thomas, Executive Director

The reimbursement is based on level in the organization and duties/responsibilities. Ranges from $45 - $75 per month.

My company reimburses $30 per month for the cell phone usage. I think it is quiet reasonable.

William Tran

William Tran, CIO

I believe $40-$60 is reasonable. We are in that range.

Michael Wahl

Michael Wahl, Senior Director of IT

$40-$60 per month is reasonable

Federico Fernandez

Federico Fernandez, Director of IT

$40 is reasonable, which should be about 50% of a decent phone plan.  The part that gets tricky is about repairs and what percent the company will assume should anything hapen to a device.

We working on combined our Phone & Internet Reimbursement to a "Technology Reimbursement". we will be giving the employees between 30 & 50 $ based on their job category, etc...
