Striving in a Paperless Office
The benefits of reducing paper are well established— less mess, better for the environment and lower costs. So why do business have trouble kicking the paper habit? Many people are simply more comfortable working with documents they can physically hold in their hands. However this adherence to paper documents can continue drive up costs over time.
Digitizing Paper Records
The first question most businesses ask is “how much of our paper records should be digitized”? Some level of digitization is essential to any workplace transformation strategy, regardless of what the ultimate goals are. Whether you are streamlining workflows and processes, enabling effective collaboration for remote employees or freeing valuable office space for managing socially distant environments, digital transformation can be a vital solution.

Redesigning Office Space
The pandemic has forever effected the traditional physical office space. While business offices still have a future because many jobs must be performed in an office-like location for a variety of reasons, they will continue to help workers feel like they’re part of something bigger. But there is no question that a discussion of office design will start with pre-pandemic
What will change? How many employees want to work in the office, fully remote or in a hybrid environment? How can the physical office support flexibility? What will be the fate of the executive suite? The storeroom? The employee lounge? The community kitchen? These are all important questions in rethinking a physical office environment.
Sustainability & Compliance
Compliance issues can often change due to environmental circumstances and effect people across your entire organization. That is why it can be beneficial to work with an experienced third-party records management firm such as Paper Cuts. How you use and manage information has a decisive impact not only on the success of your operations but also the protection of individual privacy, how quickly you can recover after a disaster, and your overall impact on the environment.
Embracing a Remote Workplace
During the COVID-19 pandemic, remote working became a vital necessity to keep businesses functioning. While remote working involves both positives and negatives, it’s clear remote working is here to stay in some form. Businesses must assess the benefits that employees are balancing with less commuting times and more flexibility versus the loss of face-to-face interaction and daily camaraderie with colleagues. Key issues to consider ongoing are:
—-Assess Benefits and Challenges
—-Identify Official Policies
—-Integrated Security Protocols
—-Enhance Encryption Standards
—-Protect Original Documents
—-Provide Data Access Options
