Why You Should Shred Important Documents in the Workplace

22nd April 2017

When it comes to the paper documents that many workplaces have piling up and making the place look untidy, there are a number of options open to you. Some companies just leave them where they are, taking up loads of space that could be better utilised in other ways, others decide to store those documents elsewhere to free up the space, and others begin the methodical and regular process of shredding important documents that are no longer of use.

What are the benefits of shredding business documents in the workplace?

Comply with Data Laws

Firstly, as a company you are legally obliged to destroy any documents that contain sensitive and personal information about customers and employees that are no longer pertinent to your business. Shredding is a safe and secure way of ensuring that information of this type is destroyed. This helps to prevent identity theft should documents be stolen from your workplace.

Free Up Space

By getting into a routine of shredding business documents on a regular basis once they are no longer needed, you can start to utilise the space left behind better. There is so much to be said for creating a more spaced out, happier work space, as well as being able to use space in a productive and money-making fashion, rather than just as storage.

Go Green

The shredding of documents can also be a boost to your company’s green credentials. At Box-It we recycle the shredded paper that we produce from our clients.
