Time is such a valuable commodity; managing it effectively can mean the difference between success and failure. So much so businesses invest thousands of pounds into automation software to free up their workforce and make them more productive. Time is important, but then so is security. Balancing an effective paper shredding policy into your busy work schedule may seem impossible - where there is a will there is a way.
It’s a difficult discipline to set aside time each day for confidential document destruction. In fact you may even see it as a waste of time. What are the odds of something going wrong if you don’t do it? As I mentioned in my previous article, this attitude has caused a rise in theft and fraud. So squeezing a sustainable paper shredding discipline into your life can save you money, stress and potential legal implications.
