Where do you think the highest number of sensitive documents end up in your workplace?
Document destruction experts say that it’s often the boardroom and other meeting rooms where a lot of documents containing private information end up on the table. That includes internal documents such as strategic plans, sales reports or personnel information, or documents that have been brought to meetings by clients or customers.
Of course another important question is whether your company has a document disposal program in place that protects all that confidential information and helps you avoid any type of security breach. You don’t want sensitive documents left on the boardroom table or tossed into the garbage.
One way to avoid problems is to introduce a Shred-All policy in your workplace. All documents that are no longer needed would be put into locked consoles and later destroyed by the document shredding service.
The placement of the consoles is key; and that takes you back into the boardroom. Some companies are reluctant to put consoles in their meeting rooms and even in general areas in the office, because of consoles’ institutional look.
But they’re not all big blue bins and containers that look like garbage bins.
In fact, some information destruction services offer custom wood finishes… so consoles can be made to match your office décor. It’s all about secure information destruction and giving you peace of mind knowing that your business is secure.
