In today’s digital world, Electronic information is being generated at an astounding pace. As a result, companies are daunted by the prospect of conquering this Everest and have been slow to implement records management policies. These policies are not one-size-fits-all. However, all well-designed records management policies offer at least the following benefits for any company:
- Improved understanding across the organization of managing information
- Improved Accountability
- Compliance with the law
The decision to implement or improve a records management policy is not always an easy one. Designing a records management policy from scratch requires an up-front investment in proper people, process and technology infrastructure.
