In life there are always moments when we realize just how messy things have gotten. We finally take a breath and look at the overflowing dishwasher, the bulging bag of laundry and the overgrown lawn with knee-high grass. It’s a humbling moment; a moment when we finally notice just how out of control things have gotten. It’s also an important moment—one when things finally start changing.
At the office, things tend to get worse before they get better. Especially when it comes to organizing (or NOT organizing) your documents and files.
According to a new CareerBuilder.com survey 16% of workers say their desks are 75% or more covered with work and other random materials. 38% say that they believe more than half of their desktop is covered. Moreover, the survey uncovered that 13% of people have files that date back 5 years or more.
At MIDCON we know that many offices simply don’t take the time to destroy their sensitive documents. They let files pile up until they can’t take it anymore and then hurriedly toss them in the garbage. This is not acceptable and it could put your business in jeopardy.
