Deciding Which Documents to Scan and Which to Ditch

documents

Rather than scanning every single document that your office has used throughout the years, you can use our helpful guide to decide which documents to scan and which to ditch.

As a business owner, opting for document conversion and choosing to go paperless can be an exciting moment throughout your workspace. However, rummaging through years of paperwork may seem less exciting and something that you didn’t bargain for. Rather than scanning every single document that your office has used throughout the years, you can use our helpful guide to decide which documents to scan and which to ditch. At Micro Records, we firmly believe in creating an organized office environment so that your employees can be productive.

Ditch Outdated Documents That You Aren’t Legally Required to Keep

Feel free to ditch any outdated documents that you aren’t legally required to keep. Rather than holding on to old paperwork dating back to the 70s, 80s, and 90s — you should shred it and dispose of it in a secure manner. Fortunately, Micro Records provides customers with secure document destruction if you’re looking to enhance your document disposal method. Any documents that you’re looking to ditch, we can ensure that they are disposed of properly.

Eliminate Old Magazines From Your Office Space

While these may not be documents, they can take up a lot of clutter within your working space. Ditch all of your old magazines into the recycling bin and pick up some fresh, seasonal magazines to keep your office space in mint condition. There’s no need for your clients to be looking at Christmas ham recipes when it’s 75 degrees outside and springtime. This can look unprofessional, so it’s best to ditch it. 

Old Employee Documentation You Aren’t Required to Keep

If you’ve had tons of staffing go through your office space throughout the years, you can likely eliminate any documentation of former employees that you’re no longer legally required to keep. For the protection of your former employees, you’ll want to dispose of each document in a secure manner that doesn’t expose their personal information. Contact Micro Records today for all of your secure document disposal needs before scanning!
