After the recent Earth Day observance, we started thinking about the impact businesses make on the environment. Especially in terms of unnecessary office waste – namely paper products. Most offices consume huge quantities of paper and other printing supplies that result in tons of waste and pollutants. If businesses make a few minor adjustments to business-as-usual, it could lead to a more efficient use of time and resources – which benefit us all.
Some added benefits of taking steps to become a “green office” include:
- Save money on paper supplies and disposal. Reduce paper!
- Less wasted storage space for printed documents
- Reduce waste and harmful impact on the earth
- A healthier workplace environment
- More efficient processes
- Social responsibility can boost employee morale and public image
Hurdling the “big rock,” reducing paper consumption, would be a great first step towards a “greener” office. What could your business do to reduce paper use and waste? Go digital!
And one of the main office functions that uses a large volume of paper and printing supplies would be the area of HR & payroll processing. Just think of all those documents printed every year for employment applications, payroll administration, and benefits enrollment, among many other types of paperwork printed and stored in your office space. That can result in a lot of wasted time, money, and space that could have been put to much better use for your business.
