Creating a document management workflow that works for Millennials may be a tough task for any department, but in a high-touch area like Human Resources, it becomes a gargantuan task that could include retooling every step of your hiring, onboarding and employee communication process. Millennials expect that all the information they need should be right at their fingertips, and their first opportunity to judge their fit within an organization is during the hiring process. How can you assure that your process in millennial-friendly?
The move toward paperless offices has made document management that much more important, and Millennials are often the ones driving that business decision. You might be surprised to find that far from dismissing print, Millennials tend to print as much or more than individuals age 36 and up. While these digital natives are a very mobile-centric demographic, they still tend to enjoy the printed page, even going so far as to print documents from home.
One of the most frustrating things about maintaining an office is rifling through massive amounts of files searching for documents. Not only is this stressful and frustrating, but it can affect work performance because you are working harder, yet producing less. The goal of an efficient office is to work smart, which allows you to accomplish your goals without the stress.
Strong partnerships are what make businesses thrive and continue to grow year after year, and when partners go out of their way to recognize your excellent work, that’s the kind of good news that you want to share with the world. At EDGE Business Systems, we are delighted to announce that we are once again Xerox’s Partner of the Year for Document Management Solutions.
The processes for document management evolve almost as rapidly as the development of new and exciting electronic devices. Going from clay tablets in a stack to files of paper stored in cabinets took several thousand years, but going from acres of cabinets, each suitable to hold less than a thousand files, to computer servers, each capable of receiving, storing and retrieving millions of files only took a few decades.
Today, businesses find themselves standing at a crossroads facing a critical decision. With some markets shrinking and others exploding, change is in the air. One constant element within every business, no matter how small or how large, how old or how new, is document management. With efficient systems in place, a constricting market can be endured until economic activity rebounds, but with old, paper-laden structures, growing businesses can’t make the most of a bountiful business uptick.
If your business is searching for ways to go green and become more environmentally friendly, going paperless is not only beneficial for the environment but beneficial for you and your customers as well. Technological advancements, such as a document management system, make it easy to be economically friendly. Making the switch to document management not only allows you to save a lot of trees, but there are other benefits as well. Here are just a few of the ways going paperless can help your business go green.
Do you feel like you are drowning under the massive amounts of paper documents in your office? Not only is it extremely overwhelming to have to dig through mounds of paperwork to find a specific document, but the clutter can have a significant impact on the productivity of your business as well. A document management system is designed to help you declutter your office and make it easier for you to find the documents you need without digging through mounds of paper.
Universities and other higher education facilities are taking advantage of modern print management systems to increase productivity while reducing costs. As digital processes transition away from the traditional printing, copying and scanning habits, they are finding it necessary to control costs and information security through more easily managed and centralized schemes.
Document management is such a simple term for such a complex reality, especially for human resource departments. Handling employee onboarding, training, health benefits, government regulatory requirements, offboarding and retirement benefits keeps any enterprise’s HR department awash in paper.
Even as the world transitions to digital documentation, going from mostly paper to electronic files is a complicated process and requires a thorough, well-designed plan. Once a strategy is implemented, the benefits to the managers of human resources and the company as a whole are many.
