Protecting personally identifiable information (PII), including private customer and employee data, should always be your number one priority, especially since your success depends on it. In some cases this may be referred to as document retention and long-term filing, but when it comes to outdated files and electronic storage devices that have reached or exceeded their officially recognized expiration dates, you need to establish an effective shredding policy to ensure that they never fall into the wrong hands.
The best way to maximize your proficiency and eliminate all risk for error in terms of secure shredding is by implementing a shred all policy. A shred all policy is great, because it clears up any current or future debates about the status of potentially questionable documents. Without wasting time determining what actually needs destroying, your employees are able to stay focused longer on the tasks that ultimately deserve their attention most. A shred all policy also ensures that you require less training for incoming employees and that no changes need to be made to the policy if and when various legal requirements are changed. A shred all policy can help keep you compliant without demanding that you or your staff pour hours into looking over paperwork, which means your payroll money is spent more wisely. With all of your employees focused exclusively on tasks that will propel your success, and the ability to remain effortlessly compliant, you can enjoy free time to spend with your family, follow your passions, or even continue advancing professionally.
In order to implement a shred all policy, you must first document the new procedures to let your staff know of the transition that will be taking effect. You can then focus on preparing your staff for the changes through additional training, or the provision of various related resources.
