Protect and retain company information
Using a basic Gmail account to conduct business email may seem harmless, but it could cost you down the line. When you conduct business on your personal gmail account, the information on it can range from new ideas and project outlines, to company financials, or even new product designs. So if an employee leaves the organization, any company files and information in their gmail account leaves with them, and if they change their password, you can lose your intellectual property. However, with Google Workspace, the business has the highest and complete control over employee accounts and all the data in them. So even if someone leaves, the account and any valuable information on it remains in the company’s possession.
