Nothing speeds the workflow along like a paperless environment. 

Paper consumption means lost hours creating documentation. This might include printing, copying, sending by email, and scanning. That’s not even the tip of the iceberg with costs, though.

Employees spend hours filing paper documents, and companies need space to house file cabinets for those paper copies. Some of those documents, like work contracts,  contain sensitive information, which means that they can’t just be discarded — you have to pay to store or destroy them. Then there are the costs of paper supplies and, of course, the cost to the environment.

Today we have the technology to create a paperless environment in HR Departments. But to make that leap, you need to understand the benefits so that you can communicate them to your board, employees and other stakeholders.
