The Paperless Office: Archive Systems Study Shows 77 Percent of HR Departments are Successfully Making the Leap

FAIRFIELD, NJ (PRWEB) AUGUST 12, 2015 — A recent survey conducted by Fairfield, NJ-based Archive Systems, Inc. a leading provider of Unified Document Management solutions, during the 2015 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Annual conference reveals that 77 percent of HR departments are successfully going paperless.

According to the HR professionals surveyed, a combined 77 percent said they were either both half paper and half digital, mostly digital or all digital while only 23 percent said they were solely paper.

Additional highlights from the survey include:

HR Managers who said their HR files were more than 50% digital, reported spending 35% of their time on administrative paperwork, a reduction of nearly half compared to industry surveys that have found 60% of HR resources are spent on administrative activities.

Hybrid environments, both digital and paper, are making the greatest progress toward going paperless. However, the biggest issue is digital documents existing in multiple systems instead of being accessible from one company wide repository.

HR Managers dealing with only paper records are still spend a majority of their time on mundane tasks and focusing less on key business initiatives.

HR Managers that still have paper records are on average 50% confident that they have all the necessary documents for audits and compliance, but companies that are totally digital are on average over 70% confident.
