The company initiated an employee-owned IT programme earlier this year. Citrix offers $US2,000 to employees to buy their own work/home PC under the scheme, dubbed ‘Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC)’. The stipulation: The computer must have a minimum three-year support and maintenance contract.
BTW yes I do think I can choose my own PC better than a head office IT person. As long as this is an annual 'tools allowance' I would be the first to sign up.
