A Crisis of Global Proportion: Slipshod Control Over Work-related Files of Employees

A recent survey conducted says that one out of two employees store work-related files in multiple locations.  Do you know any employee who stores all their work-related files in one place?  While common sense suggests this percentage is much higher, the point is that most organizations are losing the information management battle–if fighting it at all.  The proliferation of business email, estimated  at 97 billion a day in 2007, when combined with poor records and information management, is a bona fide global crisis.  It is not easy to achieve, but the organizations that dig in and start enforcing compliance with records management policy will realize material savings to the bottom line and quickly gain competitive advantage.
