If you want to preserve our planet, you’ve probably realized how wasteful the holiday season can be. Although many businesses are making the effort to go green, it’s easy for organizations to fall short at this time of year. With all the festivities, our environmentally friendly programs often fall by the wayside. However, there are lots of small changes you can make to ensure that your office does its part to help our environment — and you’ll never have to sacrifice your celebrations. Here are five ways to keep your office eco-friendly this holiday:
There are many types of materials that go into the making of modern computers that can be recycled. Silicon chips, hard disks, resistors, and capacitors can all be found inside any electronic device. Many of these contain materials that are scarce, with no known substitute, and doing your part in the recycling process is important. Decreasing e-waste aims to preserve resources and the amount of energy we use to make those devices.
As technology advances and office equipment evolves, we will learn to rely less on printing and more on digital copies of documents. Computers will become smarter, and advancements in the next 10 years will be faster than what they were in the past 10. Interestingly enough though, today, efficient shredding is still a big part of office practices. So, while we try to transition the process of record keeping toward digital, we must continue to be careful with our paper records at the same time.
Have you put office organization on the back burner?

Your disorganization could be costing you more than you realize. It’s been proven that a clean, streamlined space has a positive psychological affect on people, improving productivity and morale.

Our culture has seen a huge shift in the last ten years in regard to privacy. The rise of Twitter and other social media platforms have made oversharing the norm, blurring the lines of what’s appropriate to share and desensitizing many people to the value of privacy. With posting personal information being so common now, it’s easy to forget just how public your information is. There’s a blind sense of trust among people these days when it comes to their sensitive information, as if the fact that not securing it is common makes it safe.
If you are going to be cleaning out your documents and getting rid of those you no longer need, you will have varying legal, tax, and regulatory requirements to consider, depending on your type of business. By continuously and securely destroying confidential data, you can safeguard your business, employees, and customers against identity theft, and protect your reputation. We will take a look at things to consider when deciding what to save and what to shred.
More than 75% of American adults actively participate in social media. While social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are great for reconnecting with old friends and staying in touch with family, they also leave us more vulnerable to cyber fraud and identity theft than ever before.
Workplace fraud happens more frequently than you may think. In fact, it’s estimated that the average company loses 5% of annual revenue to workplace fraud every year.

There are also no companies that are in the clear, even in Richmond, VA. Fraud happens at both large and small companies every year.

Home and business owners often recognize their need for shredding services, but shy away when they think about the volume of paper and materials they’ll need carted off.
