Millions of people have been working from home during the pandemic. We are all kinda wondering the same thing. “When will it be over and when can we return to normalcy at our office?
Regardless of when it is more of the question of when and “when” is the important thing. Millions upon millions of personal and business documents have been generated during the pandemic. Why? We have been generating those personal and business shred documents at home as opposed to the office. As an employer, or manager, you need to be conveying to your staff that any personal shred documents or business shred documents need to be brought to the office and placed into a secure locking shred container. From there a locally owned and operated document shredding service (like Embassy RMS) will come onsite and shred all of those dormant confidential documents with their mobile shredding truck.
Why use a professional document or paper shredding service company?
Using a NAID certified document shredding service near you is the most cost effective, timely, and secure way to shred all those papers that are lying around your home office. I wrote another blog post awhile back related to a “clean desk policy.” We recommend that if you are working from home that you lock up all of your sensitive confidential documents to be shred inside your desk or inside a cabinet in your home office. This is just good practice even if there was not a worldwide pandemic going on. Keep your personal and business documents safe from a potential data breach or identity theft. We are licensed and bonded. We specialize in the shredding of personal health information (PHI) and we are HIPAA and FACTA compliant.
When to bring shredding back to the office?
No need to even take this step if you don’t want to. Do you have documents piling up in your home or personal office? No worries, just search for shredding service near me and then click on the link for Embassy Records Management and Storage and we will set a time up to visit your personal office and shred those papers for you. We specialize in one-time shredding service or if you will continue to work from home we can set up a recurring shred service depending on the frequency that fits your home office the best. We offer monthly recurring shred service as well as quarterly and on-call shred service. If you are not comfortable with that, we offer contact less shred drop off at both our Waco, TX location and our College Station, TX location. A one-time purge (if done thoroughly) can eliminate any possible data breaches related to storing sensitive paper documents in your home office or personal office. Getting the sensitive clutter off your desk can lead to home office efficiency and decrease the chance of identity theft.
Summing up the how’s and why’s.
We all know that Covid 19 has caused so many employees to work from their home office or personal office as opposed to their traditional offices. We are slowly returning to the office. When everyone returns you will most definitely want to provide a one-time shredding service by a trusted local shredding service company. We will all need to be aware of how important it will be to destroy all of the sensitive documents stored in our home office. Personal shredding might as well be lumped into this scenario as well. Using a one-time shredding service will keep your confidential paper documents out of the hands of thieves and properly shredded like they should be.
