There are a number of factors that must be considered before deciding to shred documents in-house or using a shredding company. These include :
- The investment that you will need to make in shredding equipment
- The sensitivity of the information (employees should not have access to certain information)
- The value of those who will spend time shredding
There are many benefits to hiring MicroShred to handle your shredding needs. These include enhanced security, consistent and reliable shredding practices and verified compliance with information protection regulations. In addition, our service will cost you 3 to 5 times less than shredding in-house when you take into consideration the cost of the equipment, labor cost, office space, maintenance, power cost and disposal cost. Plus your employees can focus on their real job, not shredding.
Internal Personnel Should Not Be Responsible For Destroying Certain Information!
Common sense dictates that payroll information and materials that involve labor relations or legal affairs should not be entrusted to lower level employees for destruction. It has been established, time and again, that low wage employees often have the economic incentive to capitalize on their access to it. The only acceptable alternatives are to have the materials destroyed under the supervision of upper management or by a carefully selected, high security service, such as MicroShred.
