Concurrent Session
Once Upon a Time There Was a Mountain of Paper
Wednesday 06/21/2017 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: HR Expertise, Consultation | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
This session will cover the importance of a strategic and analytical approach to electronic records management, paper removal, sensitive data and electronic shredding. 

This is a timely example of how an HR department with good intentions failed to strategically map out this migration process. By sharing James Madison University’s story perhaps other HR departments will think about how they are currently storing their records, their record management processes and moving forward how they will adapt to technology and the movement towards a paperless society. This session will allow you a firsthand look at the intricacies of a project this size and examine critical issues including records retention, retention schedules and sensitive documents and data. You will learn:

  • How James Madison University tackled the problem of duplicate records (electronic and paper.) 
  • The importance of a strategic and analytical approach to electronic records management.
  • A systematic approach to paper removal – identification, destruction, compliance and work flows
  • Strategies for dealing with sensitive data (FMLA, WC, STD, LTD, ADA, HIPPA and OSHA.)
