When it comes to the trend of using tablets in the work place there
are a fair number of companies that have embraced the emergency of
mobile technology and either ponied up for tablets for select employees
or created a bring your own device policy that has allowed workers to
bring in their own tablets to the work force.
Adoption however is far from universal, but studies show that it
just might be on the rise. A new study shows that the businesses in
Australia are increasing their rate of tablet adoption this year.
According to a forecast recently put out by Roy Morgan Research there is
going to be a 31% increase in the number of companies that are going to
be allowing workers to use tablets in the office. In addition there is
expected to be a whopping 50% increase in the overall number of tablets
that are going to be used in the work place.
Of course the adoption is not the same across all industries. While
about 37 percent of media related companies are going to be bringing
tablets into the workplace only 13 percent of companies in agribusiness
will be adopting the same policy, which oddly enough only put them four
percent behind employers in the education industry and those who were
labeled as "professional, scientific and technical services", two fields
in which one would think their might be a high level of adoption.
For now medium sized businesses seem to be the slowest adopters,
with very small businesses (less than five employees) and very large
businesses that are leading the way when it comes to adopting tablets in
the work place.
