Abstract: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is an emerging trend whereby employees are allowed to use their own mobile devices to access organizational data from anywhere and anytime. It helps increasing employee productivity and reducing capital cost for the organization. To formalize and implement BYOD policy, it is imperative to understand the employee’s attitude and intention since the success of this policy highly depends on their attitude and intention. Therefore, this study proposes an insight on the factors influencing employees’ attitude towards BYOD & their intentions to use their own devices for organizational purpose. A research model have been developed based on Technology Acceptance Model(TAM) which is tested for reliability and validity through Structured Equation Modeling using sample collected from 332 employees. The results of this study indicate that decision by employees to adopt BYOD is indeed a complex interplay of a number of variables and while some of them may affect attitude towards BYOD they may not have a positive effect on intention to adopt BYOD. The study also brings forward several implications which can be a valuable reference for practitioners and other researchers.
