Me and my Mac

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is your work device not the one you want?  

Does your employer offer an Employee Choice program? In many organisations it’s already high on the agenda. It has been shown that employees who are allowed to choose their device are more productive, creative, satisfied and less likely to change jobs 1. But how is this arranged in your organization?  

Why you should be able to choose your own device… 

Recently, our way of working has changed rapidly. We have transitioned from a primarily office-based way of working to a hybrid working environment. Having the right devices to support this new way of working is essential. For example, if you use a device of your own choosing, you will be able to work in a more intuitive way, and this will help you get started easily in changing work environments, whether you are at home, on the go, or in the office.  

In fact, a study commissioned by Jamf found that 68% of employees reported being more productive when working with a device of their own choosing. On top of that, 72% would choose Mac if they had the choice.

Employees do the best work using the products they know and love, with many employees using Apple products at home they expect to use the same products at work. Therefore, employees who use a Mac require less IT support and are more productive. Besides higher productivity there are many other reasons why organisations should offer Mac to their employees. 

5 reasons why employees choose Mac: 

  • Mac is easy to use, compatible, and provides a seamless experience across devices 
  • Apple’s has strong commitment to the environment because every Mac is energy efficient and free of many harmful toxins 
  • The overall user experience of Mac devices is intuitive as it works as the users expect it to 
  • The Apple M1 chip is the latest groundbreaking technology in the industry 
  • Whether it’s Mac, iPad, or iPhone, all Apple products enable creative problem-solving and provide frictionless experiences that enhances productivity.

Make your case!  

If you want to help introduce Mac into your organisation, then below are some arguments to be used to make your case! All of them relevant benefits which managers can’t ignore.    

5 Reasons why organisations should offer Mac:  

  • macOS has great support for many core productivity and collaboration apps, including Microsoft Exchange and Office 365. 
  • Employee loyalty is higher among Mac users1.  
  • Every Mac is designed and built with security in mind. 
  • Mac is simple to deploy and manage through Apple Business Manager (ABM) and a mobile device management (MDM) solution. 
  • Mac delivers great value throughout its entire product life cycle, including acquisition, deployment and support. The higher residual value of Mac (compared to a PC) lowers the total cost of ownership, making Mac affordable2.
