We are looking to update our current policy and would be interested to see how the rest of the world handles company-provided devices (when it comes to personal usage) or using personal devices for business (are the employees reimbursed any specific amount monthly for using their personal equipment.

My email address is pmccormick@firstbancorp.com. Thank you so much.
