To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
Anonymous Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
At Filofile we have noticed October and November are the months when businesses concentrate on “getting their house in order.” Traditionally it is one of our busiest times of the year as companies and organisations seek our services to store and manage their documents.
It may be something to do with the year starting to draw to a close as the leaves turn brown and drop from the trees and there is a subconscious desire to prepare for a new year ahead by consolidating records and putting everything in order.
Sometimes it’s not about storing the documents, but ensuring they are safely shredded and disposed of. Confidential removal of obsolete documents and media forms an integral part of any records management strategy and Filofile provides comprehensive destruction of redundant documents and records when they are no longer needed.
Documents are shredded into an enclosed container that is then baled and taken for recycling ensuring the maximum environmental benefit in terms of sustainability and efficient utilisation of resources. Documents that are scheduled for destruction are completely destroyed by shredding securely within our storage facility and we issue certificates of destruction to ensure your audit trail is complete. We can also manage your file destruction schedule for you.
Whatever your document management and storage requirements this autumn, Filofile is here to help. It’s time to contact us for a quote.
