Human Resources

Human Resources Professionals can protect their information security with our secure paper shredding and hard drive destruction services.

Despite living in a digital age, the average employee still generates around 10,000 sheets of paper every year.1 From financial reports to copies of important emails, the number of those documents that are highly confidential is hard to estimate.

As a Human Resources professional, you are in a unique position where you are able to ensure the information security of both your organization AND your employees at the same time.

Protect your employees. Protect your business. Get Shred-it.

It’s not just HR’s job. It’s everybody’s job.

The risk of an information breach can come from anywhere in your organization. As the HR department, almost everything you collect, retain, or discard is confidential information. But so are documents found in Finance, Marketing, and Sales.

If up to 25% of breaches are caused by employees,2 then keeping confidential information confidential needs to be the responsibility of your entire organization.
