Best Business Practices During the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to greater numbers of people working from home than ever before. This transition might have involved some stress or confusion. However, not all work-from-home scenarios need to add complications to an already challenging business environment. The security and support of secure document destruction may have been a service you took for granted at an office. Unfortunately, the pandemic has provided fraud and identity theft opportunities for many criminals. As a result, there has never been a greater need for safe business information practices such as secure document shredding and hard drive destruction.

Worried about finding someone who will be consistent and secure enough for your now-permanent home office? Working from home doesn’t mean you have to compromise on security and service. Sierra Shred has the right service options for you.

It’s important to vet your on-site shredding service vendor thoroughly. Many smaller companies do not have the rigorous security controls utilized by Sierra Shred:

  • Confidentiality Agreements & Certificates of Destruction provided
  • Records destroyed in accordance with state and federal regulations regarding information destruction including HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA
  • Extensive 7+ year background checks and drug testing by 3rd party vendor on all personnel
  • State-of-the-art mobile shredding trucks with on-board cameras for viewing

Using a vendor who can provide both office and residential shredding services is a smart choice. Sierra Shred can easily transition from on-site office service to home office service. Using personal shredding machines with limited capacity is problematic, time-consuming, and labor-intensive. It is simply not a good use of valuable employee time.

However, it is very wise to consider the access others may have to a staff member’s trash.  Having a shredding service means you do not need to worry about security breaches. In addition, using Sierra Shred means the only time your staff spends on shredding is the time it takes to place documents in a box.

Transitioning to a permanent home workspace doesn’t have to mean compromising security. It is not necessary to add the stress of managing additional security concerns.  We are happy to talk you through the differences in service options and explain what to expect. Sierra Shred can make this a seamless transition for you.

Although many have transitioned to working from home for the foreseeable future, there are also numerous offices opening back up for on-site operations. Staff members are returning to their workplaces for the first time since March. This transition means a lot of paper and opportunities for security breaches. Confidential information cannot be left unsecured.

Sierra Shred provides cost-effective, convenient, and secure document shredding on-site service at your location. We provide shredding containers at no cost to you. Shredding is handled by our professional service technicians in state-of-the-art shredding trucks with cameras.

Coordinating document destruction for your company can be complicated. At this time, many businesses are finding themselves with a need for both types of services. Having a shredding company that can easily transition from one to another is one more way to keep your company running seamlessly.
